Financial Aid Office

At Murray, we believe that no one should be denied an education because of financial need. That's why we work hard to provide a host of financial opportunities such as grants, loans, part-time employment, and state KEES scholarships. Last year, over $80 million in financial aid was awarded to Murray State students.

How are we doing? 

The Financial Aid Office is conducting a survey to assist our office in better serving our customers and meeting their financial aid needs.  We would appreciate if you would please take a moment to complete the brief satisfaction survey.  Your feedback is valuable to allow our office to improve and continue providing quality assistance.  Your response is anonymous.  Please complete the survey by clicking here.

Please be sure to visit Federal Student Aid to learn about financial aid from the U. S. Department of Education.
