Policies & Procedures: Visiting Students
Other Colleges at Michigan State University
A student who has a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 and has successfully completed 29 credits at the law school may take up to six hours of elective credits in professionally related graduate level courses at other colleges at Michigan State University. Grades from these courses will be accepted on a Pass/Fail basis (which will count toward the maximum of five total hours of Pass/Fail credits under the rules of the Law College). Any student wishing to take graduate courses at other colleges at MSU must acquire the prior approval of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Other Law Schools
With the permission, and at the discretion of the Law College, a student may attend another ABA- and AALS-approved law school as a visitor during a regular semester for compelling circumstances only. Neither financial exigency nor the desire to live or practice in another jurisdiction is a compelling circumstance. Permission to visit during the summer at an out-of-state law school or foreign summer program of an approved U.S. law school will be liberally granted. Visitation at an in-state law school will be granted only for courses not offered regularly at Michigan State University College of Law. Only elective credits may be taken at another law school. Only grades of "C" or better will be given credit. All grades will be treated the same as grades earned at MSU Law. Application should be made to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs or the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
