14 Summer Courses/ Transfer MSU You may take courses at a community college until you reach 56 total credits. You can always take courses at a 4-year university. Grades never transfer, but you must earn at least a 2.0 for the credit to transfer! Check with an advisor to make sure the course you are taking will transfer correctly. Check the Transfer MSU Credit Evaluation System at ISP/ISB transfers can be tricky. MSU requires 2 credits of lab and most other schools only offer 1 credit labs! Don’t get stuck! 14
