Tuition Incentive Program

Western Kentucky University offers a Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) to qualified undergraduate students who are residents of 18 states across the US. Students residing in TIP states can attend WKU for nearly half of the regular out-of-state rate! 

TIP is a special tuition rate based entirely on a student's state of residence. There is no appeal process regarding a student's TIP eligibility. Students who graduated from a high school located within a TIP state will also be eligible for the TIP rate.

Eligible incoming freshmen may also be awarded the Tuition Incentive Program Scholarship (TIPS) see eligibility requirements.
