Students can take additional undergraduate hours to fulfill the 150-hour requirement; however, it is recommended that students wanting to fulfill the 150-hour requirement at Morehead State University should consider completing the requirements for the MBA degree, or a Master of Accountancy program. MSU graduates, through an agreement with Northern Kentucky University, are given preference in admission to the NKU MA program.
