NOTES

1 The applicable tuition and mandatory fee rates are determined at the time charges are assessed based on the student’s primary academic program, including students concurrently pursuing multiple degrees and/or certificates. Course and program fees are not included in the above rates.

2 Unless stated otherwise, the full-time per semester rates are charged to undergraduate students enrolled for 12 or more credit hours and graduate and professional practice doctoral students enrolled for nine or more credit hours. Part-time students 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, (e.g., graduate students in residency status) are assessed on a per-credit hour basis.

Undergraduate courses offered fully online (i.e., Internet, web-based delivery mode) are assessed using the Undergraduate Online Learning Tuition Rate. These courses are assessed tuition and mandatory fees per credit hour, separate and in addition to tuition and mandatory fees for any other courses. There is no full-time tuition cap for undergraduate online courses. The Undergraduate Online Learning Tuition Rate is the same for resident and non-resident undergraduate students. In addition to tuition and mandatory fees, a $10 per credit hour Distance Learning Fee is assessed for all courses offered fully online.

3 Students enrolled in courses offered through distance learning such as fully online (i.e., Internet, web-based delivery mode), off-campus, TV courses, and compressed video are assessed a $10 per credit hour Distance Learning Fee in addition to tuition, mandatory fees, and any other course-specific fees

4 Mandatory fees are assessed based on the student’s full-time or part-time status, course delivery mode(s), and whether the student is enrolled in at least one on-campus course. A course is considered on-campus if it requires regular or periodic physical attendance on campus for instruction and/or assessment. The delivery modes for an on-campus course may include, but are not limited to, traditional classroom, hybrid (e.g., traditional classroom and Internet, web-based), compressed video, or satellite courses. Unless stated elsewhere, students are assessed a maximum $674.50 for mandatory fees per term. (View the 2020-21 Mandatory Fees here).

The Annual Full-Time Rates for graduate and professional programs include mandatory fees totaling $1,524 for the full academic year and provide year-round access to services provided by University Health Service. The Full Program Rates for graduate programs include mandatory fees for all terms covered by the applicable program.

If a student wishes to participate in any activity supported by a mandatory fee that has not been assessed, the student must pay the total mandatory fees for the semester, except as follows. Part-time students and students enrolled in all off-campus courses may pay the Student Health Fee and the Student Wellness Fee to access University Health Service. Students enrolled in programs within the colleges of Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health are assessed the Student Health and the Student Wellness Mandatory Fees regardless of the location of courses. Students enrolled in programs within the College of Medicine will be assessed all mandatory fees regardless of the location of the courses.

Pursuant to the Memorandum of Agreement with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, students enrolled at the Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) may select and pay for specific services from the list of mandatory fees. However, all mandatory fees will be assessed BCTC students that reside in University of Kentucky student housing.

5 Unless stated otherwise, graduate and professional program students enrolled exclusively in online courses (i.e., Internet, web-based delivery mode) will be assessed tuition using the applicable resident rate, regardless of residency status 

6 The President, or his delegate, may interpret the application of these rates on an individual student basis in extraordinary circumstances. In periods of public health emergencies or other large-scale disruptions, the President, or his delegate, may also interpret the application of these rates in accordance with the University’s response to such disruptions.

Non-resident undergraduate students from select contiguous counties in Illinois (Massac, Alexander, and Pulaski) that are enrolled in this program are eligible for the applicable Kentucky resident rates.

Undergraduate students in the BCTCblue+ Program may enroll in up to 12 credit hours (no more than four courses) during the fall and spring semesters at the current Kentucky Community and Technical College System tuition rate plus associated University of Kentucky mandatory fees and any applicable course fees.
