Morehead State has made significant changes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, throughout MSU’s more than 130-year history, one thing has never changed: being an institution that trains and prepares future educators to go out and make an indelible impact on people’s lives in the service region and beyond.  

For the next five years, MSU is discounting graduate tuition on all 600-level courses within the Ernst & Sara Lane Volgenau College of Education. The rate for the next five years will be the same as the University’s undergraduate tuition rate, which is currently $374 per credit hour.     

MSU offers easy admission and transfer of credit, as well as online courses and programs for ease of completion.    

“As part of our Commitment to the Commonwealth, MSU is proud to honor Kentucky’s educators for their service,” said MSU President Dr. Jay Morgan. “We recognize that these times are unprecedented and challenging for all of us, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing affordable access to high-quality academic programs. MSU has a long, proud history of educating teachers. We were founded as Morehead Normal School and later became Morehead Teachers College before earning university status. We are educators, and we celebrate educators at all levels.”
