Volume 84 | August 2023

This catalog is the official source of information about Morehead State University's academic programs. Its purpose is to guide you in planning a course of study to meet program, department and University requirements. See the index for an outline of the information provided.

The information in this catalog is current at the time of publication. If you are pursuing a degree and remain continuously enrolled in the University (excluding summers), you may complete a program according to the catalog requirements in effect at the time of your original enrollment.

If you are not continuously enrolled in the University and do not complete a bachelor's degree within five years (three years for an associate degree), you may be required to meet the program requirements stipulated in a current catalog.

If you are a transfer student pursuing a bachelor's degree, the time allotted for degree completion under the catalog in effect at the time of your enrollment is based upon your classification at the time of transfer. For example, a sophomore transfer would have four years, a junior three years and a senior two years. If you transfer above the freshman level and you are pursuing an associate degree, you have two years to complete the program under the catalog in effect at the time of your enrollment. The above limitations are based upon continuous enrollment.

Advisors, departments and University offices make every effort to provide current information to students, but it is your responsibility to know the policies, regulations, and degree requirements that affect you.
