Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Enrollment Instructions

Please note that this year’s process will differ from previous years as the University transitions to a different student information system (SIS). Please review the information below and complete the shopping cart feature to ensure a successful enrollment process.

New this year:

Prior to your enrollment appointment, it is recommended that you add classes to your Shopping Cart and “validate” your class selections to confirm you are ready to enroll. The validation will check for prerequisites and alert you to any approvals that are needed, time conflicts and list any holds that would prevent you from enrolling. Then, when it is time for you to enroll, you will be ready to do so with ease. Informational videos demonstrating MSU’s new Class Search and Shopping Cart functionalities, as well as other help resources, are available online at sis.msu.edu/sishelp.html. If you find you are having difficulties, please consult the SIS Enrollment FAQs page.

Until courses begin, the schedule is subject to change.  Please review the schedule posted on the College of Law website for specific information regarding exams and the following:  
E = Experiential learning, P = Permission required, S = Professional skills course, U = satisfies ULWR.

To assist you in achieving your Law program and career objectives, the Office of Student Affairs has put together a short, self-enroll D2L community with modules and resources on a variety of topics, including graduation requirements, honors, and the bar exam. Please visit the Navigating the Law School Beyond the First Year Self Enrollment page to enroll.

If you have questions about requirements, course selection, or policy and procedure Dean Taylor and Director Jarquin in the Office of Student Affairs (OSA), as your Academic Advisors, are happy to help you navigate those things. To setup a meeting you can select a time that works for you on their  Bookings page.

Enrollment by appointment begins June 14, 2021. You can access your class schedule by logging into MSU’s SIS at student.msu.edu and clicking on the tile labeled “Classes.” Two-factor authentication is now required for SIS.
