Murray State to propose new graduate tuition and fee rates

Murray State University mark

MURRAY, Ky. (April 19, 2018) — Murray State University will propose a new graduate tuition and fee model for the upcoming academic year. The new model, if approved by the University’s Board of Regents and the Council on Postsecondary Education, will be effective fall 2018.

The new model features a per credit hour rate schedule based on the program of study. Most graduate programs will cost residential students $544 per credit hour (with nine credit hours per semester considered full-time). Doctoral programs, with the exception of the nurse anesthetist program, will cost residential students $590 per credit hour. A complete list of the proposed new graduate tuition rates is available online at

“The new graduate tuition model is expected to make our graduate programs more affordable for students, ultimately making our already outstanding programs of study even more competitive in today’s market,” said Dr. Mark Arant, provost and vice president of academic affairs.

Similar to the University’s undergraduate tuition rates, the proposed graduate rates are differentiated by in-state, regional and non-resident/international rates as well as by a new hourly rate for all online graduate programs. It also includes a Kentucky educator rate for in-state students enrolled in education-related master’s degree programs.

The University Board of Regents is expected to review the proposed rates on May 11.
