New Horizons Classes

MSU partners with New Horizons to provide a range of technical training, desktop applications, ITIL training, and programming language courses for MSU employees and departments. You will find a variety of business and technology classes in the New Horizons Training Portal for MSU. (EBS no longer offers New Horizons course registrations.)

You can use Educational Assistance funds if available, a departmental credit card, or a personal credit/debit card as payment. Please review the updated registration process for New Horizons offerings.

Online Live sessions can be taken at any of the New Horizons office locations in Lansing, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Livonia, or Troy and offer dual monitors for viewing the course materials and virtual system. While you will still have a live online instructor for the Online Live sessions, it may be convenient and conducive to learning to participate from a location with less distractions (e.g., conference room, home office). You will receive specific login information in two to three days upon registration.

The Lansing location of New Horizons is located at 1146 South Washington Ave. (corner of Washington Ave. and South Street), Suite A-B Lansing, MI  48910.
