Admission Procedures

New non-KCTCS transfer students or readmitted students must have previously earned at least 60 credit hours and have a 2.2 GPA.  Current MSU students seeking to change their major to BIS must have previously earned 60 credit hours and a 2.5 GPA.  Please refer to the  "Center for Adult and Regional Education"  section of the Academic Bulletin for more information.


In order to apply for admission to the Integrated Studies program at Murray State University, students must apply online.

Students who applied for admission to Murray State as a new student but did not enroll may need to complete a new application for admission. Before applying again or requesting new transcripts, the student should call the Transfer Center to see if the materials sent before are still on file. Please direct all admission related questions to the Transfer Center staff.


Once you are admitted, you will receive a letter of acceptance in the mail. You will then need to contact your Integrated Studies academic advisor to get signed into the first course, BIS 399. Completion of registration for this course and payment of tuition and fees enroll you in the Integrated Studies program. At that time you may also register for other classes on myGate.
