Admissions

The Broad College admission process detailed below is available to current MSU students only. Prospective MSU freshman and transfer students must apply through the MSU Office of Admissions.

Enrollment in the Broad College of Business is limited, and admission to the Broad College is competitive. All applicants must comply with the Broad Policy Statement for undergraduate students. Admission is a two-step process: students must apply first to the Broad College, then to their intended Major.
