Registration FAQ

All students on and off campus, must schedule through myGate. Before scheduling you must consult with your advisor about your class selections. Students choose their classes from the Schedule of Classes viewed through myGate.  It is your responsibility to be aware of and comply with all university, college, department and program requirements and regulations. Those participating in athletics and/or the honors program, also must have the approval of the advisors for those programs.

All financial obligations to the university must be cleared before a student will be permitted to schedule. The Office of the Bursar accepts credit card payments through myGate, or obligations may be paid by mail, or at the Cashier’s Office on the second floor of Sparks Hall 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CST/CDT, Monday - Friday, unless otherwise indicated. 

Any questions concerning payments should be directed to msu.bursar.office@murraystate.edu or to the Office of the Bursar at (270) 809-4227.
