Tuition & Financial Aid

The cost for MSU courses in all IAT certificate programs is based on the MSU per credit tuition rate. Current per credit rates for resident, non-resident, and international students can be found at Tuition & Fees. IAT students are not included in the block tuition program for undergraduate programs at MSU.

The MSU Office of Financial Aid administers the financial aid for all IAT students enrolled at Michigan State University in East Lansing. Students enrolled off-campus at community college partner locations will have their financial aid processed by the community college.

All domestic students regardless of enrollment in East Lansing or off-campus are encouraged to apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and seek out scholarships from the certificate program industry they are planning to pursue.

IAT Community College partner locations

The cost of MSU courses delivered at community college partner locations is determined by the MSU per credit tuition rate; however, the cost of community college courses is based on their per credit tuition rate. Check with the community college for current rates.

Each semester, students will typically enroll in a combination of MSU courses and community college courses to reach full time enrollment status.

FFA Degree Completer Program

High school students who complete an approved Michigan Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Education program and earn their FFA State Degree will be awarded 6.0 general credits in agriculture and natural resources that can be applied toward any academic program at MSU including the Institute of Agricultural Technology certificate programs.

The State FFA Degree Completer Program is available through a partnership with MSU, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) and the Michigan Department of Education
