Tuition Reduction-Graduate Programs in Education

The Morehead State University Volgenau College of Education is offering a reduced tuition rate to all Kentucky school teachers and other educators enrolled in courses within our College of Education.

Reduced Tuition & Easy Transfer

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.

  • Through 2025, MSU will be discounting graduate tuition on all 600-level courses within the Volgenau College of Education. The rate for the next five years will be the same as our undergraduate tuition rate which is currently $374 per credit hour. See MSU Tuition and Fees.
  • Easy admission and transfer of credit to MSU. Apply Now to graduate programs at MSU.
