Steps to Transfer

  1. Complete the Undergraduate Application
  2. Have your official transcripts from each previous institution sent to the Office of Enrollment Services. In order to be official, transcripts must be mailed directly to MSU from your previous school. Send all official documents to:

    MSU Enrollment Services
    121 E. Second St.
    Morehead, KY 40351

MSU provides assistance with identifying which credits will transfer easily to MSU. For questions about your transcript, the review process and course equivalencies, contact the office of the Registrar at

Transfer students who apply for admission with fewer than 24 credit hours will be admitted subject to the same admission criteria as that of an entering freshman. If you have less than 24 college credit hours, please submit your high school transcripts and ACT or SAT scores to the Office of Enrollment Services.

In addition, any previous college work will be given consideration in the admission process, and any student with a GPA lower than 2.0 on a 4.0 scale may be considered for probationary admission. International transfer students are not considered for conditional or probationary admission.
