Note 1:  Full-time students are undergraduates who enroll in 12 hours or more of coursework during Fall and Spring terms.  The full-time tuition rate applies to undergraduate students taking 12-18 credit hours (either exclusively on-campus or a combination of on-campus and distance learning).  Full-time undergraduate students will be assessed an additional per credit hour fee equivalent to the per hour tuition rate for course loads exceeding 18 hours a semester.          

Note 2:  Graduate tuition and fees are assessed per credit hour based upon the course (i.e. on-campus or distance learning).  There is no full-time graduate rate.  For the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, there is a $1,200 program fee per semester for students enrolled in 5 or more credit hours or $600 per semester for students enrolled in fewer than 5 credit hours.  The program fee is not assessed during the winter term.

Note 3:  The Distance Learning Course rate is for all part-time students, regardless of residency, enrolling in on-line, web-based courses.  Students enrolled exclusively in distance learning courses will be assessed the distance learning per hour rate regardless of the number of hours enrolled.  There is no full-time distance learning rate.

Note 4:  International students are eligible for tuition scholarships.  Please visit http://www.wku.edu/graduate/aid/ for further information.

Tuition and fees will be assessed and available for review on TopNet in mid-July for the fall semester and mid-November for the spring semester.
