Enroll in Courses

Please review our instructions for enrollment, even if you are an experienced FLT student. The MSU website for searching, enrolling, and reviewing academic status has changed! Current students in our FLT programs should also refer to MAFLT Students Home in SharePoint or Teams: michiganstate.sharepoint.com/sites/MAFLT.

What should you do if you cannot enroll in the course(s) you want or need? Complete our internal Special Enrollment Form. Click How to Enroll for further instructions.

Note: If you are trying to enroll in one of these courses and it does not appear in the Class Search (https://student.msu.edu), it will soon! If the course you want is full or the system says you need an override, see below.

Preparing for the Semester – Fall 2022

Course Materials Memo – US22

Your instructor will notify you when you have access to the course in D2L and Teams.

What textbooks do I need to order?

See course info in SIS > Class Search. [A new Course Materials Memo for FS22 will appear shortly.]

Why does D2L look different now?

Some courses are using the D2L Brightspace Lessons new user experience and some are not. If D2L looks a little unfamiliar, you can find help here:

What if I need to change or drop a course?

That is one of the updated topics in the new and improved Orientation Modules. Also see: MAFLT SharePoint > Enrollment Guide.
