Applying as a Transfer

Online Application

Morgan offers multiple ways to apply for admission. Regardless of the application that you choose to use, please only apply with ONE application. This ensures that your application is processed efficiently and effectively.  If you completed all of your college courses while enrolled in high school, you should apply as a freshman with college credits.

If using the Morgan application, you will create your student portal at the time of application. If you using the Common Application or other application options, once you submit your application you will receive an email with instructions on how to create an online student portal. The portal allows you to follow your admission application through the journey to an admission decision. Additionally, important information can be found in your portal regarding events and academic programs - we STRONGLY encourage you to check your student portal for application updates.

Please note our application deadlines and admission requirements.

Lastly, we encourage you to apply to Morgan State using a non-school or university-related email account. Many high school or college emails have firewalls that often will send our emails to your spam folders. To ensure you don't miss any important notifications from our office, please use a personal email account to apply.

*Please note that in addition to your admission application, you also need to send additional information to COMPLETE your application for an admission review. These steps are outlined on the webpage below.
