Spartan Early Start 2023 Course Selection
Eligible students can select one or two of the classes below to enter in their SES application. You can view a PDF of the application before you apply. All classes run during MSU’s second summer session, which starts July 5, 2023, and ends August 18, 2023. Availability in the course depends on if there are open seats, which change regularly.
When making decisions, please review the information on the FAQ page and consider the AP, Dual Enrollment, transfer, or other credits you are transferring in to MSU. You may also want to review MSU’s Class Search page in your student portal for additional details about the course.
If you have questions about course selection, please consult your college advisor, email the SES team, and/or view MSU’s advanced credits or transfer information websites. You can also reference the SES 2023 college guides for recommended courses.
When reviewing the courses below, please note the organization of the course information below as you make your decisions:
- First, the classes are organized alphabetically by MSU College, then alphabetically by course subject codes within the college. For example, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and ABM, which is the course subject code for the Agribusiness Management program.
- For each specific course listing under the MSU College heading, you will see the course code, course number, and section number; then the title; and then credits. You need most of this information when you apply. For example, ABM 130, section 731.
- Then, you will see a course description. Note that some courses have specific themes for each section, specifically IAH, ISS, and UGS courses.
- Fourth, we state the course modality. All classes are online, and most are asynchronous (you do not need to meet at a specific time each week). A few are synchronous (you need to meet online at a specific day and time) or have optional synchronous components. Some of the courses associated with College bridge programs require some time on campus.
- Finally, we provide notes for the class related to who can take the course, suggested academic backgrounds, any prerequisites, and restrictions.
