MSU prepares students to graduate equipped for careers and further education. MSU’s low student to faculty ratio means accessible professors and hands-on learning opportunities. Working alongside world-class faculty mentors, students discover new knowledge that helps to improve quality of life around the globe. This supportive and collaborative learning environment helps students succeed in competing for national and international scholarships and awards. 

Entry requirements

There are four simple steps to applying: 

  • Complete your application. 
  • Pay the application fee.
  • Submit your proof of English proficiency.  There are several ways this can be done. For more information, please visit our Options for Meeting the English Proficiency Admissions Requirements webpage. If a student cannot provide proof of English proficiency, we can provide conditional admission, which leads to enrolling in our intensive English program prior to beginning the academic program.
  • Submit your transcripts. If you are applying as a freshman, please send us your high school transcript. If you are applying as a transfer student, please submit transcripts for all post-secondary coursework completed. 
  • Duolingo - Minimum Required Score 110

Scholarship & funding

MSU's Office of International Programs is proud to offer merit-based scholarships to international undergraduate applicants. These awards are based on grade point average as well as SAT or ACT scores. These awards will be applied only toward MSU tuition.

When an international student submits their application, they are automatically considered for scholarships based on their grade point average from high school. While we do not require SAT or ACT scores for admission, students may submit them to be considered for additional scholarships. Students who apply to MSU are eligible for consideration. 


Student life

The Office of Student Engagement (OSE) provides and facilitates student engagement opportunities for MSU students through a variety of programs, events, services, and activities. We are THE HUB for students interested in connecting with their fellow Bobcats through student government, student organizations, programs and events, and engaging in service to the community.
