Active Duty Military

The University of Kentucky salutes our men and women in uniform serving honorably around the globe. If you are stationed at Fort Knox or Campbell you and your family will be considered in-state for tuition purposes.  If you choose one of our online degree programs AND use your GI Bill benefit you too will be considered in-state for tuition purposes regardless of residency or duty station. 

Note:  UK's cost per credit hour does exceed active duty Tuition Assistance rates!

IN-STATE TUITION FOR ACTIVE DUTY, SPOUSE, AND DEPENDENTS SERVING IN KENTUCKY!

As of 1 July 2009, members of the Armed Forces serving on active duty in Kentucky for a period of more than 30 days will be charged in-state tuition. This also applies to the spouse and dependent children of the service member. House Resolution 4137 ensures that service members are not penalized for relocating for military service. If you are currently serving in Kentucky or if your permanent duty station or home of record is Kentucky, you will be charged in-state tuition for the duration for your continuous enrollment.
