NOTE: MSU is currently transitioning to a new student information system. Instructions on this page will be updated accordingly, but the most recent guidance and links can be found at

New and Current MAFLT Students

To enroll in a course in the MAFLT Program (FLT prefix), MAFLT students can go directly to the Student Information System ( and search for FLT courses by semester. First-time users will need to set up two-factor authentication to access the system. Click on the Classes tile to search for and enroll in classes. For help navigating the enrollment system, watch this tutorial video. More help can be found here

Once you find a course you are interested in, click on it to read a description or find out about textbooks and important dates. FLT courses almost always have the section number 730.

If you need to change your course schedule or un-enroll from a course, use the same process or access your schedule at STUINFO ( and look for the link for Enrollment.

Do you need an override to enroll in FLT courses?

The answer is yes if one of the following situations applies to you. In that case, click the link below to fill out the form. The Program Director or Academic Coordinator will contact you when you override has been approved. Then you will need to enroll yourself in the course.

If you are not currently enrolled in an FLT Program (MA or Certificate):

If you are not in the an FLT Program—for example, if you are a Lifelong Education student or if you are in another program at MSU—then you must receive an override to enroll in FLT courses. Please use the button above to access the Special Enrollments Request Form (formerly the Override Request Form). Based on enrollment, you may receive permission to enroll immediately or you may be added to a waitlist for that course.

If you want to enroll in a course that is listed as full:

Current MAFLT students and others may ask to be added to the waitlist for a course that is listed as full. With sufficient demand, we will add a section or raise the maximum number of students (and add a course assistant). In these cases, you should fill out the Special Enrollments Form and also send an email to Keep in mind that we will try to accommodate you, but filling out the request does not guarantee that we will be able to do so. 

Note for MAFLT students near the end of the program:

MAFLT students who want to take FLT 885 and/or FLT 898 no longer need an override to enroll. However, keep in mind: 

  • For FLT 885, you should fill out the EM Application form (link in the MAFLT Community) before trying to enroll. 
  • For FLT 898 Final Portfolio (Comprehensive Exam), you should be in your last semester of the program. Make sure you have also applied for graduation through the MSU Registrar’s Office! More information at: Advanced Degrees | Commencement (
