TO ENROLL FOR
GRADUATE-LEVEL
COLLEGE CREDIT

Step 1

Enroll as an MSU student & activate your MSU NetID

 If you are in the journalism master’s program or have taken a class as a Lifelong Ed student within the past year, skip to Step 2.

  • Click here to enroll as a Lifelong Education student at Michigan State University. This is essential if you are not already an MSU student or if you have not taken a class as a Lifelong Ed student for the past year. MSU will issue you a student number (known as a PID).
  • Create & activate your MSU Net ID. You will log into MSU’s online course system with your NetID. MSU also will create an @msu.edu email account with your NetID.
    • If you already have an active MSU NetID, go to step 2.
    • Activate your new MSU NetID (so you can receive and pay your tuition bill). You need your PID and PAN. You will get these after you register through Lifelong Ed. It takes a few days to get this, so please do it soon.

Step 2

Tell us you want to take a class.

Complete the below form OR email Jeremy Steele to let him you’re interested in taking the class. List your PID (student number) if you have received it from the university.

Step 3

We’ll enroll you in your class

Once you have your PID and your MSU NetID is activated, we’ll be able to enroll you in the adviser class of your choice. If you haven’t already told us, please email your PID to Jeremy Steele.

Step 5

Pay your tuition bill

View and pay your tuition bill at MSU’s StuInfo page. No bills will be mailed to you. (Find tuition rates here.)
