Welcome to the Student Success Center where our mission is to enhance the academic and personal development of students through proactive and innovative programs.

Located in Library Science building on the Tishomingo campus, the Student Success Center offers a number of services designed to ensure the success of Murray State students. While our facility is primarily used to house professional and Student Support Services tutors, and peer tutors, we also offer services such as academic coaching, study skills and strategies, career development resources, and content specific workshops. We also have four conference rooms designed for group study sessions or meetings.

Tutoring- After Thanksgiving Break, tutoring services will be held via Zoom. Click here for scheduling and Zoom links.

The Student Success Center provides academic support to students at no cost. While our primary focus is support in writing, math, and science, we can tailor our services to meet other course-specific needs.

The Student Success Center houses four group study/conference rooms. We have two smaller rooms perfect for a group study session of 3-5 people. Are you looking for a larger space? We have two larger conference rooms ideal for 8-10 participants. Reserve your study or meeting space today.

SSC Online Writing Lab- This service will not be available the week of Thanksgiving (Nov.22-29). It will resume on Nov. 30.

Along with in-person tutoring, the SSC also offers online writing assistance via the Online Writing Lab. Please submit your essay atleast 48 hours before its due date to ensure that we get it back to you in time to make corrections. Also, we currently have no tutors that work weekends, so essays submitted at that time will be reviewed the following Monday. You can submit your writing assignment to have it reviewed by a trained Writing Tutor. 

SSC Printing Request Form

Due to the current safety precautions, computer use is limited. To help students skip the line of waiting for a computer, we have created a Google Form that allows you to submit the document that you need printed. Click on the link below to fill out the form and attach your document. Printed documents will be available for pick up at the library circulation desk. Please submit your document atleast 24 hours before the pick up time. This helps ensure that our staff can print documents in a timely manner. SSC Printing Request Form
