Tuition & Costs

2021-2022 Tuition Rates
Tuition Category Cost Per Credit Hour
In-State Students $179/credit hour
Out-of-State Students: From Contiguous Counties* $358/credit hour
Out-of-State Students: Other Out-of-State Students $627/credit hour
Mandatory Fee** (all students): $8/credit hour
Distance Learning Course Charge*** $20/credit hour

What's With the ***?

Great question!


The first * is for contiguous counties. Contiguous counties are those which border Kentucky. Students from these counties pay a special tuition rate. Students from Reciprocity Counties pay in-state tuition.

Next, the ** is the KCTCS BuildSmart Investment for Kentucky Competitiveness fee.

Then *** is the Distance Learning Course Charge. You'll pay this fee if you have classes with online portions, like Learn on Demand or Learn by term. Don't worry, 'hybrid' classes don't pay this fee.
