Tuition and financial aid for online classes
Online Course Tuition
Tuition for online courses is the same for both in-state and out-of-state students. You will be charged in full for online courses according to the rates below even if taking a full-time course load. Online courses are charged separately and in addition to any regular (non-online) courses you may be taking. If you're receiving a tuition scholarship, check the monetary value to determine whether the cost of online courses is covered.
Courses offered online and charged according to the fees below are designated in the schedule of courses. To see online courses only, select "Distance Education" in the location field.
Undergraduate course $460 per credit hour
Graduate course $660 per credit hour
Active-duty* service members** $250 per credit hour (see more information on our tuition page for active duty military and veterans)
Reserve Component and Kentucky National Guard** May be eligible for $250 per credit hour tuition assistance rate
For regular (non-online) course tuition rates, visit the Office of the Bursar's tuition site.
We know the cost of education is one of the most important considerations when deciding where to pursue a degree. The University of Louisville is committed to ensuring you’re knowledgeable about all of your financial aid options. That’s why we created Start to Finish, a collection of all the information you’ll need to simplify the financial aid process and make earning a degree affordable for your family.
The cornerstone of the financial aid process is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). File the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for need-based federal student aid. The UofL school code you’ll need when filing the FAFSA is 001999. Please note that international students are not eligible for federal financial aid, with some exceptions. To learn more about eligibility for international students, visit the U.S. Department of Education website.
In addition, other payment options include:
- Military benefits. Visit http://louisville.edu/veterans or contact Carissa Gentry.
- Employer tuition assistance. Ask your employer if this benefit is available.
- Convenient payment plans. Make several payments throughout the semester.
- Scholarships. If you attend KCTCS or Ivy Tech Community College (Sellersburg), you may qualify for the Academic Transfer Scholarship. Visit the transfer services website for details.
You might also qualify for the Go Higher Grant, a need-based grant awarded to Kentucky residents age 24 or older. Visit the Go Higher Grant web site for application details and qualifications.
UofL’s Office of Student Financial is available to answer any questions you have about the financial aid process. Visit the financial aid web page or contact a financial aid counselor at 502-852-5511.
*Active-Duty is defined as on orders for 180 days or more.
**As of January 1, 2012, the Department of Defense tuition assistance rate of $250 per credit hour also applies to certain members of the Reserve Component and Kentucky National Guard.
