MSU named College of Distinction for Adult Students 

Morehead State University received recognition multiple times from Colleges of Distinction. Recently, the popular resource, in partnership with Abound, gave MSU one more ranking, designating the University as one of the Best Colleges for Adults.  

"For MSU to be ranked as a College of Distinction for Adult Students is an incredible honor," said Jen Timmermann, director of transition services. "Adult students are a vital demographic in our overall population, and we're honored to assist them in achieving their educational goals."   

Abound is a system that provides guidance to adults pursuing higher education at the undergraduate and graduate level. Institutions selected schools as a Best College for Adults by upholding practices and creating and reflecting a great flexible program, including night and weekend access, childcare opportunities, strong part-time student retention and graduation rates, affordable tuition, and more.  

"We strive for a student-centered approach and work diligently to meet adult students where they are, whether it be via online completer degrees or regional campuses. Our faculty and staff are accessible and understand the responsibilities and real-life demands placed on adult students such as full-time employment, caregiving, and the like," Timmermann said. "MSU provides strong support programs for Adult students such as tutoring, disability services, student support services, and professional advising."
