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, except as noted below.  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 the courses. 
2 The full-time rate is charged to undergraduate students enrolled for 12 credit hours or more and graduate and professional doctoral students enrolled for nine 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.
4 Lower-division rates are assessed undergraduate students with less than 60 cumulative credit hours. Upper-division rates are assessed undergraduate students with 60 or more cumulative credit hours. In addition, lower-division undergraduate students (freshmen and sophomores) enrolled in the UK College of Engineering Extended Campus Program – Paducah are assessed tuition and fees based upon the West Kentucky Community and Technical College’s tuition and fee rates. Upper-division undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) are assessed the applicable UK rates. Students enrolled in this program and residing in select contiguous counties in Illinois (Massac, Alexander, and Pulaski) are also eligible for the applicable Kentucky resident rates.

8 Students enrolled in only online distance learning courses during the fall and spring semesters will be charged the Kentucky resident rate regardless of residency status. Students enrolled in undergraduate online distance learning courses during intersessions (e.g. summer and winter terms) will be charged based on their residency status. 
9 Beginning Summer 2016, the Master of Business Administration rates for new students are based on the program duration. The rates reflect the total price of the program, including tuition and mandatory fees. The rates will be assessed in installments throughout the duration of the program. Tuition for the one-year program will be assessed in three installments (Summer, Fall and Spring semesters) and mandatory fees will be assessed in two installments (Fall and Spring semesters). Tuition and mandatory fees for the two-year and three-year programs will be assessed based on course load.
