MSC FAFSA Code: 003158

Welcome to the Murray State College Financial Aid Office. MSC offers a variety of grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships to help students meet the cost of attending MSC. Information collected from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will determine the amount of aid needed for each student. The FAFSA calculates the amount the student's family is expected to provide and the amount of need-based aid the student is eligible to receive. Our primary purpose is to provide counseling and prompt, courteous assistance to students and their parents in identifying, applying for, and receiving financial assistance to meet educational costs.
