Program Requirements

Students may now enroll in the Bachelor of University Studies - Professional Studies Track program. Those students that have completed or are dually enrolled in an Associate in Applied Science (AAS), Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of Arts (AA) program from Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) may use their degree toward the completion of the online program at MSU.

KCTCS graduates who meet the admissions requirements and academic policies of MSU will be eligible for admission to the online Bachelor of University Studies in professional studies program. This 2+2 agreement enables KCTCS graduates to complete a bachelor’s degree in the equivalent of two years of full-time study.

The BIS in Professional Studies Track is specifically designed to be compatible with professional schedules and family commitments of adult students. Because it is a completely online program, students who transfer into the program do not need to relocate to the Morehead campus.

To be eligible for the program, students must:

  • Complete or be dually enrolled in an AAS, AS or AA degree program.
  • Meet MSU’s requirements for admission, which include a minimum GPA of 2.0 for all classes taken.
  • Apply and be accepted to MSU.

Because of the online nature of the program, students transferring into this program are exempt from participation in the First Year Seminar course and compulsory on-campus housing requirements. However, the student must complete an additional course in SBS to meet general education requirements. Students registered for the special online sections in the course rotation do not have to meet course prerequisites.
