MURRAY, Ky. Murray State University’s Fall 2021 enrollment indicates many positive trends, including stability with overall enrollment as well as continued growth in multiple student classifications.

Below is a snapshot of this fall’s enrollment:

"We outperformed many national enrollment trends this past year with stability and sustained growth in a number of key classifications,” Murray State President Dr. Bob Jackson said. “As we approach our centennial in 2022, Murray State University will continue to provide nationally-recognized academic programs which are recognized for both quality and value at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for our students.” 

Murray State continues to reinforce its “high-quality, high-impact, nationally-recognized best value” promise that has been identified by multiple publications this fall. The University has been named a “Best Bang for the Buck” by Washington Monthly, one of “America’s Best Colleges” by Forbes, as well as a “Top-Tier University” by U.S. News & World Report for more than 30 consecutive years. 

The University offers 146 academic programs and more than 170 student organizations, encompassing a variety of shared academic and personal interests. 

Murray State continues to offer financial assistance to Racers and their families. Based on the University’s most recent annual reports, more than $115 million was awarded in financial aid and scholarships and 99 percent of Murray State’s freshman class received financial aid or a scholarship. 

Students interested in joining the Racer Family can learn more, schedule a virtual or on-campus visit and apply for admission at admissions.murraystate.edu.
