* Rates include mandatory student fees. Students taking all courses at off-campus locations (including distance learning classes) 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.

(1) 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.

(2) Students enrolled part-time and in intersessions (e.g. summer and winter terms) 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.

(3) The annual rates for Medicine, Dentistry, MBA (“Day Program”), and the Doctorate of Physical Therapy include mandatory fees for 2012-13 and 2013-14 of $1,241 and $1,273, respectively. Due to the transition of Pharmacy rates from per semester to annual, the 2013-14 annual rates for Pharmacy PY 1 - 3 include mandatory fees of $1,273 and the 2013-14 annual rates for Pharmacy PY 4 include mandatory fees of $1,098.00.

(4) A half-time 2013-14 tuition and fee rate of $13,472.50 for resident students and $23,943.50 for non-resident students is established for those pharmacy students who have been approved by the Dean of the College of Pharmacy to have a reduced curriculum load.

(5) The College of Medicine tuition and mandatory fee rates are ‘locked in’ for each entering class cohort. The rates do not change while students are enrolled in the program. A half-time 2013-14 tuition and fee rate of $17,571.50 for resident students and $31,673.00 for non-resident students is established for those medical students who have been approved by the College of Medicine Student Progress and Promotion Committee to have a reduced curriculum load.

(6) A half-time 2013-14 tuition and fee rate of $15,290.00 for resident students and $30,547.50 for non-resident students is established for those dental students who have been approved by the Dean of the College of Dentistry to have a reduced curriculum load.

(7) The 2013-14 rates for the Master of Business Administration ‘Day’ Program are effective June 1, 2013.
