Tuition

Fall 2023 and Spring 2024

The following information is not intended to be comprehensive and is subject to change. Tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by administrative, legislative, or University of Louisville Board of Trustees action, and changes become effective on the date enacted.

Tuition Rates for online courses are the same rates for in-person courses, unless otherwise noted. Students can take a combination of online, in-person and hybrid classes for the same credit hour rate. This structure is in place for both undergraduate and graduate courses. 

Please note that students who are enrolled in a 100% online degree program through Online Learning, will continue to pay online program rates.

All registration fees and special charges are available in the UofL academic catalogs and from the Registrar's Office and are subject to change without prior notice. This partial summary is intended to provide a ready reference for students.


A UofL education is an excellent investment in your future. For additional information on educational expenses and the Cost of Attendance, please visit the Student Financial Aid Office’s website.

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 Office of Admissions 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.
