Direct Enroll and Exchange Programs
- Research course offerings. Use the host institution’s course listings, which can be found on each program’s page on the Office for Education Abroad website. Previously approved courses can be reviewed on the MSU Office of the Registrar website and the Transfer MSU website.
- Complete course approval process. Create a list of courses and upload syllabi to MSU’s online Course Approval Form (CAF). Make sure course codes, titles, and credits are exact (in the original language, no abbreviations). Use the course list from the semester you plan to enroll – do not use prior semester lists, as not all courses are taught each semester. We recommend getting 6-8 courses (summer programs) or 10 courses (fall and spring semester programs) pre-approved just in case courses abroad conflict or are not offered.
