Frequently Ask Questions
Please review the following frequently asked questions for more information regarding Concurrent Enrollment at Murray State College.
How many credit hours can I take concurrently?
Concurrent students typically take between 3 and 9 credit hours a semester determined by their high school counselor. Your high school counselor/principal will help determine the appropriate amount of hours you can take through the Recommendation Form. The State Regents limits students to 19 credit hours per semester combined between their high school and MSC enrollment. MSC considers each class take at the high school as 3 credit hours. This means that if you wanted to take 2 classes (6 credit hours) with MSC, you could take no more than 4 classes at your high school.
What college courses should I take and will they transfer?
There are several general education courses at the collegiate level that are required no matter what major you choose. These courses transfer to other colleges and universities, giving students a jump start on their collegiate requirements. Students who plan on transferring outside the state of Oklahoma should work closely with the college/university they plan to transfer too. Below is a list of recommended courses for concurrently enrolled students:
- English Comp I and/or English Comp II
- College Algebra
- US History to 1877 and/or US History Since 1877
