The University Center of the Mountains (UCM) is a dynamic consortium of postsecondary educational institutions bringing more bachelor and master's degrees and educational opportunities close to home in southeastern Kentucky. The partnership will add other universities and colleges to deliver more advanced degrees based on student, employer and community demand.

The eight present partners are: Eastern Kentucky University (EKU), Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC), Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), Kentucky State University, Lindsey Wilson College (LWC), Midway College, Morehead State University (MSU), and the University of the Cumberlands.

Offices are located in the J. Marvin Jolly Classroom Center on the Hazard Community and Technical College campus, off highway 15. Students may enroll in undergraduate and graduate level courses. Classes are offered at times to meet the needs of busy adult students, including day, afternoon or evening courses, as well as interactive video and online. Morehead State also provides assistance and support with its online degree programs. Area students may choose from a variety of courses leading to a bachelor's, master's, education specialist or doctoral degree. Morehead State is committed to meeting the needs of the region and giving those students a quality education.
