High school juniors offered tuition-free courses through Murray State College
July 11, 2019
Murray State College is offering area high school juniors a tuition free head start in obtaining college credits this fall. Through an initiative announced this week, students preparing to enter their junior year in high school can enroll in up to six credit hours of concurrent courses at the college tuition free.
The initiative further expands the college’s concurrent student enrollment program designed to give high school students opportunities to take collegiate level courses and gain college credits while still in high school. It provides students with a collegiate experience, helping prepare them to take the next step beyond high school graduation.
"We're excited about the possibility of including juniors in our concurrent enrollment program. With free tuition for up to six credit hours, they can really get a head start on college here at Murray" said MSC President Joy McDaniel.
Students interested in taking advantage of the tuition free offer, which is currently only available for the fall 2019 semester, must meet all concurrent enrollment program admission requirements. Enrollment for the fall semester, which starts August 12, is currently open to new and current students.
More information on concurrent enrollment can be obtained by calling (580)-387-7230 or visiting the concurrent enrollment page on the Murray State College website, mscok.edu.
