Welcome to the Murray State College Financial Aid Office. Our office helps connect students to a variety of financial aid opportunities including grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships. Information submitted to us through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will help determine the amount of need-based aid the student is eligible to receive. Federal student aid is available to students that have maintained satisfactory academic progress (SAP) by maintaining a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) and have completed at least 67% of their for-credit courses.

Financial Aid Policies

 Outreach to use Professional Judgment due to Pandemic.***

Financial Aid Advisors (FAA) at Murray State College have been given the ability to adjust financial aid eligibility based on a special circumstance to reflect more accurately the financial need of students and families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Professional judgment by the FAA to adjust is on a case-by-case basis and may require the FAA to obtain and retain supporting documents that substantiate the adjustment. 

As a current or new student to Murray State College, please contact the Financial Aid office at​ or call 580-387-7220 if you and your family have suffered an economic hardship due to the pandemic. 

Note:  Before we can begin this process, we must have a FAFSA on file in our office.  We can help with that as well.  Call or email us today!
