Murray State University has implemented new test-optional guidelines for undergraduate admission to the institution.

Students are encouraged to continue to submit test scores if available, as these will be used in the advising process and for certain scholarships. 

“This change to our admission policy further emphasizes the importance in assessing the holistic accomplishments and performance by students throughout their high school career,” Murray State President Dr. Bob Jackson said. “No longer requiring standardized test scores for prospective undergraduate students for admissions will better serve future Racers and their families as they consider the high-quality, total college experience that Murray State offers.

The University will maintain its undergraduate admission requirements of a 2.0 high school GPA or higher, provided the student has achieved an 18 or higher ACT composite score. Students with a 3.0 or higher high school GPA are admitted without ACT or SAT test scores. Students who do not meet these benchmarks may have other admission options, and are encouraged to call 270-809-3350 or email msu.admissions@murraystate.edu

Both campus and virtual visits are available by calling 270-809-2896 or emailing msu.recruitment@murraystate.edu. Individuals and their families can meet one-on-one with a Murray State staff member virtually through Zoom or by phone.

Students interested in attending Murray State can learn more, schedule a virtual campus visit and apply for fall 2021 admission at admissions.murraystate.edu
