Transfer Student Advising

Jeff Heys and Geraldine Govaerts are the principal advisors for transfer students until you get on track with the MSU chemical and/or biological engineering curriculum.

The evaluation of your credits transferred from your previous institution takes place in two parts:

  1. The University evaluates general courses for MSU course equivalencies.  University transfer evaluations are performed by the Admissions Office.

  2. The Department then evaluates your transfer courses for possible course substitutions. Departmental transfer evaluations are performed by department transfer advisors.
