2024-2025 FAFSA Simplification Act
The BetterFAFSA will open by December 31, 2023.
At Murray State University, 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 scholarships.
The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is to offer opportunities for students to gain access to higher education through financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional aid. Our office strives to provide the highest quality of service while awarding all possible financial assistance and supporting the University’s recruitment, enrollment, and retention efforts to enable students the ability to achieve their desired educational goals.
