Articulation and Consortium Agreements 

As part of its land-grant mission to increase access to higher education and to facilitate the transfer of credits between institutions, Michigan State University has entered into formal agreements with a number of institutions, both nationally and internationally. This webpage provides information on agreements that impact degree requirements. There are two primary categories of such agreements:

  • Consortium agreements involve programmatic arrangements that anticipate either dual or intermittent enrollments; anticipate the availability of financial aid; require actions by support offices that are individually tailored to the needs of the program and require unique processing; involve tuition and fee charges that differ according to the source of particular courses in the program; or require understandings based on potential differences in academic policies.
  • Articulation agreements are mutual promises of cooperation for particular programmatic purposes to provide program access at whatever location through a pattern of normal transferability of students from one institution to another, without dual enrollment status that is formally recognized or requires any special treatment.

International consortium and articulation agreements that do not impact degree requirements are available at isp.msu.edu.

Internal MSU 3 + 3 agreements that impact degree requirements are available in Academic Programs.

Guidelines to assist in the development or revision of a consortium or articulation agreement.

For advising, students should contact their academic advisors.

For questions regarding any of these agreements, please contact:
