1. Classes Must Count Toward Degree to be Eligible for Financial Aid

Financial Aid may only be awarded to courses that apply toward a student's degree.

If it is determined that aid was provided for an ineligible course(s), the financial aid department is required to recover those funds and return them to the originating program (e.g. the Department of Education, Kentucky Commonwealth, etc.).

Any balance that is due to MSU as a result of the funds being recovered is the responsibility of the student and must be paid prior to enrollment in a subsequent semester.


1.1. Concurrent Enrollment

Students who are attending at least three (3) credit hours as a degree seeking student at Murray State University and are concurrently enrolled at another institution(s) may be able to receive federal aid for their combined enrollment.

  • To be eligible, the hours enrolled at other institutions must transfer in to MSU and count toward their degree.
  • Students must submit a completed Concurrent Enrollment form for each school in which they are enrolled to be considered for loan and Pell eligibility. 
  • If a student withdraws or ceases attendance of any course at any of the institutions, they may lose financial aid eligibility for that semester.
  • Students should speak with a financial aid advisor for additional guidance prior to dropping any course for which they are receiving aid.
