Early Graduate School

A Morehead State University undergraduate student who has completed 90 or more credit hours toward the completion of the baccalaureate degree may be considered for undergraduate concurrent admission to the Graduate School to enroll in graduate coursework. To be eligible for undergraduate concurrent admission, the student must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 at the time of admission and not be registered for more than 15 total hours. Students may earn a maximum of 12 graduate credit hours while holding undergraduate concurrent admission status.

The student must maintain a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 and a graduate GPA of at least 3.0 to continue in the Early Graduate School program. If the student drops below the 3.0 minimum GPA, he or she will not be allowed to continue in the program. 

An application for Early Graduate School and an application for admission to the Graduate School for the specific program of interest* should be initiated by the student. Admission to the Early Graduate School and the specific graduate program must be approved by the graduate dean and the program specific department representative. To be admitted to Early Graduate School, the student must be conditionally or unconditionally admitted to the specific graduate program to which they applied. A new Early Graduate School application must be completed and approved for each semester of graduate study as an Early Graduate School student.

Students who are enrolled in both undergraduate and graduate coursework may receive an adjustment to their financial aid. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine what changes may occur.
