Bundled Tuition and Fees

Regular (Non-online) Tuition

The rates listed below apply to regular (non-online) courses only. Tuition for regular (non-online) courses is capped when a student reaches full time status (see hours listed for each academic level), while online courses are charged separately and in addition to any regular (non-online) courses a student may be enrolled within a semester.

Indiana Tuition Reciprocity

The University of Louisville is participating in an Indiana Tuition Reciprocity Program for residents of Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Perry, Scott, and Washington Counties who have been admitted directly into an approved program. The Reciprocity would afford students that reside in these counties to be eligible for the Kentucky In State Residency Tuition Rate. Students pursuing degrees from the Professional Schools (Law, Medical & Dental) are not eligible. Eligible participants are required to notify the Admissions Office prior to their first enrollment and the Registrar's Office after their first enrollment of any changes in the enrollment status, if they no longer live in one of the eligible counties, or no longer in an eligible program.
