Murray State Continues Safe Preparations for Fall
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MURRAY - Murray State University continues to move forward with a phased process for a safe, healthy and effective restart in preparation for a successful fall 2020 semester. 

The University's Racer Restart plan is guiding the institution while adhering to all state, federal and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

Both incoming and returning students are currently registering for fall classes. As announced earlier this summer, the University will offer a combination of in-person, hybrid and online instruction while maintaining a new normal, traditional on-campus experience for students.

Incoming students are currently completing summer orientation sessions, which began in May through a virtual platform. Remaining summer orientation sessions will take place virtually on July 7 and Aug. 6.

Beginning July 13, the university plans to resume campus tours for prospective students and families, in compliance with health and safety guidelines. 

Individuals are invited to also take a virtual campus tour or schedule a one-on-one meeting with a Murray State staff member virtually through Zoom or by phone.

The University also offers the Murray State Promise, which provides scholarship assistance to eligible first-time freshmen and new transfer students whose tuition may be fully covered through this initiative. Additional information is available at

Students and families who haven't done so already should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as the FAFSA is required in order to receive financial aid such as a Pell Grant or other federal money. Individuals can apply at and use Murray State code 001977.
