KCTCS, Murray State University announce new partnership initiatives

VERSAILLES, Ky. — Officials from the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and Murray State University recently signed an articulation agreement to deepen their collaborative partnership by providing students with additional well-defined and fully integrated pathways from earning an associate degree at KCTCS to a baccalaureate degree from Murray State.

Through this partnership, a dual admission program has been established, as KCTCS students will obtain dual admission to Murray State by completing an application for a new pathway program that has been established by both entities.

These pathways, defined as degree program-to-degree program agreements, will clearly outline selective admission requirements, course equivalencies, and other relevant information for students who will enroll in a particular academic program.

KCTCS pathway participants will have access to Murray State advisors to assist in this seamless transfer to Murray State, may obtain a Murray State ID, and will be invited to select events at Murray State.

KCTCS, with 16 colleges and over 70 locations, is the largest provider of postsecondary education, online education, dual credit classes and workforce training in Kentucky. KCTCS is number one in the nation in credentials awarded per capita by two-year, public postsecondary institutions.

Murray State, which is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) continues to provide high-quality, career-defining academic programs that position students for success beyond graduation. Ranging from agriculture to business, music to engineering, healthcare to education and much more, Murray State offers 148 academic programs and a 16:1 student-to-faculty ratio.

For additional information, contact Murray State’s Transfer Center at 270-809-3350 or [email protected]. Individuals can speak with a KCTCS advisor at the nearest college and view a listing of colleges at kctcs.edu.
