Welcome, Mission, and Purpose

Mission Statement: Murray State College Provides Opportunities for Student Learning, Personal Growth, Professional Success, and Community Enhancement.

This handbook is your guide to all the services and activities available to you as a Murray State College (MSC) student. It outlines your rights and your responsibilities as a student and as a part of the academic community. It is your responsibility to learn about and take advantage of the services and activities offered throughout your time here, just as it is your responsibility to learn and follow the established rules, policies, and procedures of Murray State College.

The College is committed to the academic, personal, and social development of each student enrolled. Annual surveys are conducted to effectively compile comprehensive information about students’ needs and goals in an effort to provide the best learning experiences for everyone in the MSC Family. Special academic support services currently offered free of charge include developmental classes, tutoring, seminars, career advisement, and guidance. These are utilized, along with the regular curriculum, to help students achieve their goals.  MSC reserves the right to update the Student Handbook as necessary to keep current with campus, state, and federal policies, procedures, and laws.

Murray State College is interested in you, your goals, and your future and wants to do whatever we can to help you excel here and beyond. After your education at MSC is complete, we want to help you choose a path that is right for you. This could be employment, further education, technical training, or some other worthwhile endeavor. If you have any questions, concerns, needs, or suggestions, please contact a member of the administration, faculty, or staff. We are here to serve you, the students of Murray State College.
