The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) requires that postsecondary institutions participating in federal student aid programs make required, recommended, and supplemental textbook and other material information available to students at the time of enrollment on the online course schedule, to the maximum extent practicable. Textbook and supplemental material information is available through the MSU Schedule of Courses by clicking on the section number of the desired course.

General tuition and fee amounts can be found here. MSU Law only issues electronic bills ("E-Bill") that can be reviewed on StuInfo. The failure of any student to pay tuition when due will result in automatic disenrollment. Refunds for withdrawal from classes will be given in accordance with the schedule shown under the Drop Period above.

Enrollment availability for a course is found on the MSU Schedule of Courses site. There are no waiting lists when a course has reached the enrollment limit. Courses will automatically reopen when enrollment falls below the enrollment limit. However, students can request an "alert" be sent to their MSU email or via text message if a course section in their planner is full and an open seat becomes available.

If there is any type of hold on your account (including but not limited to: law school advisor, student receivables, financial aid, traffic/parking tickets, MSU), your enrollment requests CANNOT be processed. All holds must be settled before the end of the drop/add period in order for your enrollment requests to be processed. Any requests submitted without holds being resolved prior to the end of the drop/add period will be discarded.

Directed study enrollment is subject to the same drop/add deadlines as other courses. However, students must first obtain approval of the supervising professor on a Directed Study Form before enrollment can be completed by the Registrar's Office. Directed Study Forms are located in the bin that is located outside of the Registrar's Office in room 309 or can be found here.

Enrollment for externships is coordinated out of the MSU Law Career Services Office. To enroll for an externship, you must contact the Careers Service Office. Since an externship is an MSU Law course, enrollment must be submitted before the end of the drop/add period.

Full-time students are allowed to enroll in a maximum of 16 credit hours during a regular semester (fall or spring) and 7 credits in the summer. Part-time students can only enroll in a maximum of 12 credits during a regular semester and 7 credits in the summer. Any student with an irregular and/or overload schedule must obtain the permission of the Assistant Dean of Student Engagement prior to enrollment.

During the regular semester (fall or spring) students can only add a course, provided the course has only met once. If the course has met more than once, a Drop/Add form signed by the professor must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Students can only add a course in the summer if it has never met. If a summer course has already met, a Drop/Add form signed by the professor must be submitted to the Registrar's Office.

A student who drops a course through Sunday, September 10, 2017 by 8:00 p.m.., will receive a refund of tuition charged for that course. Beginning Monday, September 11, 2017 through Sunday, September 17, 2017 by 8:00 p.m.., a course may be dropped without a "W" appearing on the student's record, but the student will be charged full tuition for the course. Beginning Monday, September 18, 2017, dropped courses will be charged the full rate of tuition, and a "W" will be placed on the student's record.

Special Note to Scholarship Students
Charges assessed for a course that is dropped after 8:00 p.m.. Sunday, September 10, 2017, is NOT covered by scholarships. The student will be required to pay the full rate of tuition for the dropped course.
