Unconditional and Conditional Admission

Unconditional Admission: If a first-time freshman applicant provides all required documentation and test scores with the application, has a 450 admission index or higher, a minimum ACT composite of 18 (or SAT equivalent), and meets all admission requirements, he or she will be admitted "unconditionally."

Conditional Admission: A first-time freshman applicant who falls short of the required 450 admission index but has at least 400 or falls short of the minimum 18 ACT composite but has at least a 14, can be provisionally admitted (refer to Provisional Studies Program). Students who do not meet the Pre-College Curriculum (PCC) requirements may be admitted with the condition that they satisfy their PCC requirements within 24 credit hours. Applicants who do not meet admission requirements may be admitted on "probation" in certain circumstances. Students on probation must have at least a 2.0 GPA in subsequent semesters and meet University requirements for satisfactory academic progress.

Students admitted with conditions of successfully completing the Provisional Studies Program within the appropriate time frame, successfully satisfying PCC requirements within 24 credit hours, and/or earning at least a 2.0 GPA in the subsequent semester who do not fulfill those conditions will have the conditional admission revoked and be dismissed from the University.

Students who are denied admission to Morehead State University may appeal the decision. They may schedule an interview with the Admissions Appeal Committee.

Undergraduate Admissions may admit students who were initially denied admission when special circumstances exist and where students can demonstrate their ability to matriculate at MSU.
