During the application process, applicants submit certified copies (sealed and stamped by institutions) of all post-secondary transcripts, graduation certificates and degrees directly to the Michigan State University department to which they are applying. MSU requires these documents in the original language (Chinese) as well as an official English translation.
Effective Spring 2015, MSU will require all incoming ADMITTED students pursuing degrees or who have earned degrees from universities in China to submit a certification report (English version) through the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) for their final bachelor degree transcripts and bachelor degree. Check with the website of the graduate program office in which you were admitted, as some departments well REIMBURSE you for the cost of the verification once you register at MSU. All verifications reports need to be sent to the MSU Office of Admissions directly by CDGDC. For those Master's degree granted students, we only need the undergraduate level certification report from CDGDC.
