NOTES
1 Rates include mandatory student fees. Students taking all courses at off-campus locations (including distance learning courses) outside of Fayette County and its contiguous counties may have mandatory fees waived. However, if a student who is eligible for this waiver wants to participate in any activity supported by these fees, the student must pay the total mandatory fees. Pursuant to the Memorandum of Agreement with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, students enrolled at the Bluegrass Community and Technical College have the opportunity to selectively choose services from the list of mandatory fees. Students enrolled in programs within the colleges of Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health will be assessed the Student Health Mandatory Fee regardless of the location of courses.

2 The full-time rate is charged to undergraduate students enrolled for 12 credit hours or more; graduate and professional doctoral students enrolled for 9 credit hours or more; and law students enrolled for 10 credit hours or more.

3 Students enrolled part-time are charged on a per-credit hour basis. Students considered full-time for financial aid and reporting purposes, but with less than full-time credit hours, (i.e., graduate students in residency status) will be assessed on a per-credit hour basis.
