In continuing efforts to reaffirm our status as a military-friendly institution, Morehead State University permits special accommodations to students who are disenrolled from the university for an extended absence, or decline an offer of admission, due to military service. If you are deployed or have military orders that take you away from your classes for an extended period of time, you will not incur an academic penalty per the University’s policy on deployments.
