The Eagle Scholars program is designed to enhance student learning and to add additional academic rigor for its high school partners. The ability for students to maximize their high school experience, especially the senior year by taking college classes is a great benefit.

Lawrence County High School teacher Pam Puruear and Joel Pace.Lawrence County High School teacher Pam Puruear and Joel Pace.Students are able to complete some general education courses and gain knowledge about what it takes to be successful in a college class.

Research shows that students who participate in dual credit programs have a higher college GPA are more likely to complete their sophomore year and graduate from college on time versus students who do not take dual credit courses.

The Eagle Scholars program also allows MSU to identify the best high school teachers and have them attached to our academic departments. The teachers must meet certain benchmark qualifications to become adjunct instructors. The program, essentially allows MSU classes to be taught at local high school by local teachers.
