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.

The Spring 2017 application is closed.

Admission Decision Appeals

Current MSU students who wish to appeal their Spring 2017 admission decision must complete the online appeal submission process by 5:00pm Thursday, June 1, 2017. Once you have submitted your appeal, please wait five business days before inquiring about the status of your appeal; most appeals are resolved within five business days.

Appeals based solely on the desire to be admitted to the Broad College, or based on missing the competitive cut-off for admission by minimal points, will not be considered. Additionally, late submission of transfer course completion documentation will not be considered a valid reason for appeal. Legitimate reasons for an appeal are limited to:

  • A quantifiable error (the student will meet the competitive standard for admission once the error is resolved)
  • New MSU academic information (late grade change/submission) that was not taken into account in the initial decision
  • An extenuating circumstance not included in the optional Personal Statement portion of the original application

Appeal requests will be reviewed, and responded to in one of the following ways:

  • Your appeal will be granted, and you will be informed via MSU email or RO Confidential Message (no further conversation necessary).
  • You will be invited to meet with the Broad Undergraduate Admissions Coordinator or a Broad College administrator for a discussion of your appeal. Notification and instructions will be sent via MSU email.
  • Your appeal will be denied, and you will be informed via MSU email or RO Confidential Message.

Admission Information Sessions

Information sessions are intended for current MSU students applying for admission to the Broad College of Business or a Broad Major this semester.  All applicants are strongly encouraged to attend. Topics addressed include: Broad College/Major application process, academic and non-academic admission factors, resources for completing the Experiential Profile, Case Study tips, and explanation of the admission decision process.

Choose the session that fits your application process and schedule. No pre-registration is required. Bring your Spartan ID Card.

Admission Criteria

All students will be evaluated for admission under the “Sophomore Admission” process. The former “Junior Admission” process is no longer in use. Admission decisions are based on a hybrid model that considers academic and non-academic factors.
