Welcome to the Student Success Center
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 and the west end of the Ardmore 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, Student Support Services tutors, peer tutors, and Academic Coaches, we also offer services such as study skills and strategies, career development resources, and content-specific workshops. We also have small conference rooms designed for group study sessions or meetings.
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.
Online options available - Current MSC students can access instant tutoring available online using TutorMe or BrainFuse. See the additional information in your Blackboard Courses by selecting "Tutoring Services" in the left course navigation panel. You can access 24/7 support in over 300 subjects with TutorMe!

Many athletic programs are required to hold study hall hours within the library. This allows athletes to have easy access to academic resources, such as academic coaching, tutoring, research assistance, and career pathway services. Study hall hours are determined by coaches and vary among teams. Students can check in at the circulation desk to sign in and out of study hall hours. Results are sent to coaches weekly.
