Michigan State University uses the semester system. There are usually 3 semesters (Fall, Spring, and Summer) in an academic year. There are about 14-15 weeks in each semester at MSU.

Courses at Michigan State University are given on a “semester” basis, and credits earned are semester credits. To convert semester credits to the “quarter” systems, multiply by 3/2. To convert quarter credits to semester credits, multiply by 2/3.

If you have 12 or more credits, you are considered a full-time student at MSU. Freshmen require 0-27 credits, Sophomores require 28-55 credits, Juniors require 56-87, and Seniors require 88+ credits.

All undergraduate baccalaureate programs require a minimum of 120 credits. Most MSU programs are designed so that a student starting a program as a first-year student may finish it in 8 semesters by satisfactorily completing an average of 15 credits a semester.

n practice, students usually carry from 12 to 18 credits a semester depending on personal circumstances and the chosen program of study.
