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
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.]
How will I participate in the courses?
FLT courses are asynchronous but highly interactive, and they all offer opportunities to interact in real time. Our learning management systems is D2L Brightspace, and we also use Microsoft Teams and other collaborative tools extensively.
What if I need to change or drop a course?
