When and how can I apply for completion of my program?  

Answer:  Apply for completion at the beginning of the semester you plan to complete your program by submitting the online completion form. The Graduate School also provides a completion checklist which includes helpful information regarding the completion process.  


How do I get course substitutions and/or transfer work to count in my degree?   

Answer:  Students must request an official transcript be mailed to the Graduate School, 701 Ginger Hall, Morehead, KY 40351.
A maximum of nine semester hours of graduate credit earned at another institution may be accepted toward meeting requirements for the graduate program provided:
1. The credit has been earned at an accredited graduate institution within 10 years of the date on which the graduate program requirements are completed;
2. The work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable program at the institution from which transfer is sought;
3. The courses to be transferred carry a mark of "B" or better; and
4. The courses are approved by the advisor, program department chair and/or coordinator and the Graduate Dean. Approval may be based on the evaluation of an institution using these criteria: length of the instructional term, frequency and length of class sessions, availability of library services, course syllabus and/or statement of requirements and faculty member's qualifications.

Transfer credits taken during the final semester of a program will delay program completion until official transcripts of the courses have been received in the Graduate School. To transfer a course, a course substitution form must be completed. Transfer credit does not compute in the MSU GPA.


How do I submit my thesis, applied project or doctoral capstone?   

Answer:  The Graduate School provides submission instructions and a schedule for submission to the Graduate School. You may also contact our office at 606.783.2039 if you have additional questions. 

 

Do I have to pay the graduation application fee even if I do not plan to participate in the commencement ceremony?   

Answer:  Yes. All students who receive a degree must pay the graduation fee.

 


If I am a teacher, how do I request a Rank change or certification?   

Answer:  You will need to complete forms and instructions for the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board and submit to the Graduate School in 701 Ginger Hall or fax to 606-783-5061. Certification forms from other states can be forwarded to the address or fax number above as well.
