Tuition Rates

Tuition rates are based on:

  • Student Classification (undergraduate or graduate)
  • Enrollment Status (full-time or part-time)
  • Delivery Mode (WEB, on-demand (IL), or face-to-face).

We understand that it can be difficult to identify ways in which the tuition structure applies to you.

Our hope is that by providing additional information, you will be better informed and know what to expect when your tuition bill arrives.


Here are a few key items to keep in mind as you're reviewing current tuition rates on the Bursar's website:

Students enrolling exclusively in WEB courses (excluding On-Demand)
are charged the standard distance learning rate, regardless of location.

Spring and Summer 2014 - Online (WEB) Rate
Undergraduate Students $445 per Credit Hour*
Graduate Students $588 per Credit Hour
Spring and Summer 2014 - On-Demand (IL) Rate
Undergraduate Students $363.42 per Credit Hour
Graduate Students $490 per Credit Hour

*For Example: English 100 is 3 Credit Hours. Tuition for this course is $1,335.

Web based courses are identified on the class schedule as WEB.

WEB courses do not qualify for the full-time tuition rate. Undergraduate students with one on-campus class use the full-time tuition rate.

Students who use for the full-time tuition rate will be charged an extra fee for any WEB courses. (Fee: $81.58 per Credit Hour)

Online Courses do meet requirements for Federal financial assistance.

We hope this has been helpful! If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office at 270-745-5173 or email learn.online@wku.edu.
