MSU successfully achieves SACSCOC reaccreditation

Since its founding in 1887, Morehead State University has been a light to the mountains where students from Eastern Kentucky and beyond achieve the goal of a college education.    

Over the past three years, MSU has conducted a thorough reaffirmation and reaccreditation process with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The University has received full reaccreditation with no deficiencies in what was a very successful reaccreditation process.  

“Over the past three years, many individuals on our campus worked very hard to prepare for, and ultimately exhibit, that we are in good standing with the Principles of Accreditation within the SACSCOC,” said MSU President Dr. Jay Morgan. “This successful reaccreditation exhibits the strength of Morehead State University.”   

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is responsible for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. These include institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Latin America, as well as specific international sites approved by the SACSCOC Board of Trustees that award associate, baccalaureate, masters or doctoral degrees.   

MSU also received a request from the Commission to utilize their Quality Enhancement Plan and submissions as a model for other schools.
