The student will not be able to prepay this fee.

If the student becomes enrolled at UK during this contract period, the student must contact UK Campus Housing to switch their enrollment status.

There are additional mandatory fees that BCTC students are responsible for paying. Each semester these additional fees are assessed to the student’s myUK account. These mandatory fees allow students access to all on campus amenities.
