Benefits of Being an Eagle Scholar

Morehead State's Eagle Scholars Program gives you a headstart on your college career while you're in high school. In this program, you will take college courses for credit taught by MSU professors and qualified instructors. You'll get credit towards high school graduation and college credit.

"The Eagle Scholars program prepared me for my academic career. The first few weeks I was on campus, I could focus on my social experience and get involved with the campus community. The preparation I had when I left high school is arguably the largest contributing factor to my success."
