Eagle Scholars

Through Morehead State's Eagle Scholars dual credit program, high school students have the opportunity to complete most or all of their first-year courses before ever stepping foot on campus. Eagle Scholars get a head-start on their education by taking college-level courses while you earn your high school diploma.

Student access to Campus Activities and events

Participating in MSU's Eagle Scholars 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 are 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. As an Eagle Scholar you can access advising, tutoring, and library services.
