Murray State’s Board of Regents has authorized a 1% increase to undergraduate tuition and fees next academic year. Graduate and doctoral rates will not change. Regents also approved on Friday fee changes to housing, dining and other areas.

The undergraduate rate increase is expected to generate $740,000 in new net revenue. Student Regent J.T. Payne voted ‘no’ on the increase.


 Murray State University interim president Bob Jackson estimates this year's fall enrollment total to be between 9,500 and 9,600. That total would be the university's lowest fall headcount in 18 years and the fourth consecutive year of decline. That enrollment trend was displayed above Murray State's Board of Regents at a retreat Thursday. Jackson is in his third week as interim president following Bob Davies' departure earlier in August and says "moving the needle" is a top priority.
