Housing Exception Application

<span style="color: rgb(0, 128, 0);" span="" Freshmen and transfers with 0-27 MSU credits are generally required to reside in University housing unless they meet certain criteria. IF YOU WILL NOT HAVE 28 CREDITS by the time you start at MSU, follow the instructions below step-by-step to avoid unnecessary confusion and frustration if you wish to apply for an exception. If you have questions about any of the information presented here, please contact the Department of Student Life at 517 355-8286.

STOP HERE! You are automatically qualified to live off campus. Please note however that you may be required at some future date to verify that you meet one of these criteria.

IMPORTANT: If you signed a housing contract for the upcoming year, you MUST also complete a Contract Release Application.
