Welcome to Midway University!

We have experienced five consecutive years of enrollment growth. Our Fall 2020 census included 1,810 students enrolled in all programs – traditional daytime undergraduate, evening, and online undergraduate, and graduate programs as well as dual credit students.

Despite recent transformations including university status and coeducation, we remain committed to our historical mission to provide students with a career-focused education grounded in the liberal arts in a personalized learning environment. Our dedicated faculty and staff care about our students and their potential growth, dreams, and successes. We are also committed to providing our students with an affordable option and offer generous scholarships. We are proud to be the most affordable private university in Central Kentucky for both traditional students and those taking online undergraduate and graduate programs, putting a college degree within everyone’s reach.

As we continue to honor and celebrate our rich history from our beginning as the Kentucky Female Orphan School in 1847 to today’s Midway University, we are always looking forward and addressing the rapidly changing landscape of higher education. How we can best serve our students remains at the heart of our discussions about the future.

Thank you for selecting Midway University.
