Aunt Millie’s kitchen table up in Kenosha.

    All online courses are charged the standard Distance Education tuition rates:

    • $497/credit for undergraduate courses
    • $714/credit for graduate courses
    • $250/credit for all active duty military*

    Online courses are charged at a different hourly rate than regular courses. Students are charged in full for online courses according to those rates even if taking a full-time course load. Tuition rate does not include costs associated with a specific course or program, such as textbooks. UofL employees and dependents may use their tuition remission benefits for Winter Session classes provided they have not reached their limit for the fall term. Winter Session is considered part of the fall term. For more information about tuition remission, see http://louisville.edu/hr/benefits/education.

    If you are a current UofL student, it is best to talk with a financial aid counselor as soon as you plan to register for the winter session to see what options may be available to you. Financial aid must be processed at least three day before the university closes for the holidays on 12/23/17. Students wishing to use financial aid for winter session should contact the Financial Aid office immediately after registering.

    • FAFSA – Financial Aid may be available if you have remaining eligibility from your aid programs
      • You need to have FAFSA on file for 2017-2018
        • If you are a transfer student, make sure UofL’s school code (001999) is on your FAFSA
      • If you do not have 2017-2018 FAFSA on file, you will need to complete it as soon as possible using your 2015 tax information at www.fafsa.gov
    • Scholarships - Check scholarship availability with the department in which you are enrolled. Trustees/Porter/Cardinal Covenant scholarships cannot be used during the winter session per the terms of condition for the scholarship program
    • KRS tuition waiver - Students with KRS documentation on file associated with veterans, police officers, firefighters, state employees, supervising or resource teachers, and foster or adopted children will be automatically awarded tuition benefits as long as standard eligibility conditions are met
