Already applied? If you've already applied to Michigan State University and you are interested in Madison, you can log into your MSU Student Portal and change your intended major into Madison. You can also contact the JMC Recruitment Office at jmcadmin or 517-353-5260 with your name, PID, and date of birth to have us request the change for you.

A note about the waitlist: As a limited enrollment college, JMC does have capped admissions. Once that cap is reached, we will move into a waitlist process and students cannot switch their major into the college without approval. This will not impact your admission into Michigan State University. Admitted students who wish to major in JMC after the cap is reached should reach out directly to the JMC Recruitment Office to be placed on the waitlist.
