Early College

Through Morehead State's Early College program, high school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to complete most or all of their first-year courses before ever stepping foot on campus. Early College at MSU allows you to get a head-start on your education by taking college-level courses while you earn your high school diploma.

Participating in MSU's Early College program will provide you with opportunities to interact with University faculty in your high school and at special events hosted on MSU's campus. Most Early College 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.

Eligibility Requirements and participating high schools

Students interested in participating in MSU's Early College program must be a junior or senior at one of our participating partner high schools. Other eligibility requirements include:
  • A minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale 
  • 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.
