Enrollment Deposit

The $150 enrollment deposit applies to all newly matriculating, first-year undergraduate students, i.e., first-time freshmen, newly matriculating transfer students and new international students. Payment of the deposit confirms the student’s intention to attend and activates next steps for smooth onboarding to MSU, incentivizes completion of pre-enrollment orientation and advising, rewards students for engaging in those pre-enrollment services designed to aid academic success supporting their transition to MSU. 

This deposit cannot be waived and $75 of the $150 is non-refundable. The balance of $75 is posted as a credit to the student's account once an orientation session, or a personalized, pre-enrollment advising session is complete. Students who discontinue enrollment between June 1st and the start of classes (Fall) or December 1 and the start of classes (Spring) forfeit the $75 credit.
