The Morehead State Early College Program

Through Morehead State's Early College Program, you can complete all or most of your first-year college courses within the supportive environment of your high school.  We want you to experience all that MSU has to offer.  You will get a head start on your education by taking college-level courses while earning your high school diploma.

Much more than a class 

If you are a high school junior or senior, you stand to gain from enrolling in MSU's Early College Program. If you are looking for an academic challenge, this program offers the same classes taught at MSU, with the same assignments and exams. Most classes will be taught by teachers and administrators in your school system, providing an extra amount of familiarity and comfort. All instructors meet qualifications to teach at a college level and are paired with an MSU faculty member for additional support. 

Much more beneficial 

Besides getting a head start on your education, you have the opportunity to interact with University faculty in your high school and at special events hosted on MSU's campus. The Early College Program brings an enhanced curriculum to your school allowing you to experience new and challenging courses. 

You also get access to the University's library services, Recreation and Wellness Center, and free admission to athletic events with your MSU ID (EagleCard). 


  • Be a high school junior or senior at one of our partner high schools 
  • Have a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale 
  • Have an ACT Composite score of 18. If you have not taken the ACT, the ACT PLAN scores from your sophomore year can be accepted. 
  • Certain courses have statewide minimum assessment scores. Discuss these requirements with your guidance counselor.
