Admission as a Transfer Student

Morehead State University welcomes transfer students and offers services to facilitate the transfer to MSU.

Students are eligible for unconditional admission as a transfer student if their GPA is 2.0 or better on a 4.0 scale on at least 24 credit hours of college work, and they are in good standing at all previously attended institutions. 

Applicants for transfer admission to four-year degree programs who did not complete the Kentucky Pre-College Curriculum (PCC) and who have completed fewer than 24 credit hours must take specified courses to remove PCC deficiencies. Removal of PCC deficiencies will be monitored by the Office of the Registrar. Students who have earned fewer than 24 credit hours must submit high school and college transcripts to facilitate appropriate advising and placement. 

Students with a GPA lower than 2.0 on a 4.0 scale may be considered for probationary admission. Transfer students admitted on probation will be monitored and will be expected to earn a 2.0 GPA at MSU during the first semester of attendance. Students who do not earn the 2.0 GPA will be subject to academic dismissal. Students academically dismissed have the right to appeal. 

Transfer students who apply for admission with fewer than 24 credit hours will be admitted subject to the same admission criteria as that of an entering freshman. In addition, any previous college work will be given consideration in the admission process, and any student with a GPA lower than 2.0 on a 4.0 scale may be considered for probationary admission. 

To be admitted as a transfer student from other colleges and universities, students are required to submit to the Office of Enrollment Services: (1) a completed Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship Application; (2) transcript(s) from all school(s) previously attended; and (3) a one-time $30 undergraduate application processing fee.
