Service members who are not eligible for the Department of Defense tuition assistance rate of $250/credit hour will pay the standard tuition rates for online courses.

Before applying, service members should contact us to determine their eligibility for the various tuition rates.

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 above rates 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 rates above are designated in the schedule of courses. To see online courses only, select "Distance Education" in the location field.


*Active-duty is defined as on orders for 180 days or more.

**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.
