Out-of-State Students

At Morehead State University, and as a member of the Eagle Nation, you’ll find opportunities and an atmosphere you won’t find at another school. The authentic MSU experience is the reason we continue to be highlighted among the very best regional universities in the South. You’ll find faculty dedicated to your goals and what it takes to achieve them. Faculty members celebrate your success and support you through challenges – in and outside of the classroom. As an out-of-state student, you’ll join a safe community where you will feel encouraged to connect with others, pursue your interests and complete an important chapter in your life story. MSU offers specific scholarships for out-of-state students that will help lower your tuition costs.

Student Success

“As an engineering major, a part of my major is design and we get to use 3-D printers and the software to do that. I think it’s a privilege to be able to use that kind of technology.”

Ethan Jeffers came to Morehead State from down south in LaFollette, Tennessee. When he isn't working on his engineering degree, he is working on his passing as a quarterback for the MSU Eagles football team. Ethan is a proud Eagle who is thankful to get the opportunities to be successful in the classroom and on the field. This is the Morehead State University difference. It’s a commitment to you and your success and it starts when you enroll and continues throughout your life.


When it comes to finding scholarships, we keep the process simple at MSU. While other schools require additional applications, your application to attend is all we need. We use your application to research and award you additional financial support.
