How does MSC's response to COVID-19 affect me?

While the decision to move classes online and transition much of the campus staff to work remotely has involved hours of planning and problem solving, we believe it is the best option to keep everyone in the Murray State family safe. We want to assure all we do business with or serve on a daily basis that even though much of our staff may not be on campus, we are still working diligently to continue serving our community partners, faculty, staff, and students. We have compiled information on a MSC Coronavirus Response webpage in order to give everyone the best contact information, communication methods and resources for specific campus departments.  

Ongoing Discussions Regarding Refunds 

A decision has not been reached with regard to refunds for COVID-19 changes on campus. This is a complex issue that involves financial aid, loans, current balances and other considerations. Students and parents will be notified when a decision has been made with regard to this issue. We appreciate your patience and encourage you to continue monitoring our website at mscok.edu for updates.

About Coronavirus

What is Coronavirus?

A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.

A diagnosis with coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1 is not the same as a COVID-19 diagnosis. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis.
