Apply to SCDC

The first step in our enrollment process is to complete an application and pay the non-refundable application fee of $45.00 ($5.00 for each additional child)- only check or cash is accepted (exact cash amount is appreciated)

Our admission priority is as follows:

  • Children of current SCDC Professional Employees
  • Families with a child currently enrolled at SCDC
  • MSU faculty, staff, and students
  • General community members

*There are generally wait-lists for all age groups and priority is given to families requesting full time enrollment

Please complete the entire application and ensure that an active e-mail address is listed. (Families are contacted via phone and e-mail regarding available spaces)

  • Families will be asked to reply within 48 hours regarding their interest in the space and given a specific date to reply by.

Applications will be placed on our wait-list until an opening becomes available.

  • Families will be offered enrollment based on their place on the wait-list and current availability of spaces
  • If offered a space, prior to when it is needed, the family may choose to hold the space by paying full tuition amount
  • If a family chooses to decline an offered space, the decline will be noted on the application with the date and reason for declining. The application will remain on the waitlist in the current position. A second decline will result in the application being removed from the wait-list
  • When a child ages out of a particular age group on the wait-list, the application will be moved to the wait-list for the next age group and filed according to the application date and criteria stated above
  • An application that is 2 years old will automatically be removed from the wait-list
    • Families will be notified by e-mail that their application is being removed from the wait-list

Due to the number of applications received, we are not able to contact families regarding wait-list status. However, families are welcome to contact us regarding the status of an application by e-mailing children@msu.edu. If you have any questions or require further information about our enrollment process, please contact the center.
