WKU OUT OF STATE TUITION
Full-time, first-time freshmen who are residents of any state that borders Kentucky can attend WKU for the in-state tuition rate. This scholarship will lower the tuition cost by nearly 60% for most students, and students can still stack on other institutional scholarships to further reduce cost. Visit wku.edu/border to apply.
What if I don't reside in Kentucky or a bordering state?
Non-resident first-time, full-time freshmen who have a 3.00 high school GPA or qualify for any university scholarship award will qualify for the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP). TIP will reduce the cost of out-of-state tuition by nearly 50%, and other scholarships can still stack. Visit wku.edu/admissions/tip.php to see if you qualify.
