Tuition Information

WKU offers this program at the Distance Learning Graduate Rate,  $618.00 per credit hour for the 2014-2015 academic year.  The Distance Learning rate is not subject to Kentucky residency. It remains consistent for all US domestic students.

However,  beginning with the Fall 2013 semester, students enrolled in the Principal Preparation program at Western Kentucky University will be eligible to apply for a scholarship that will guarantee them a graduate tuition rate of $395 per credit hour.  To learn more about the Topper Educator Graduate Scholarship, please click here.

Financial Aid:

Most students seek some form of Financial Aid, primarily student loans, to cover the cost of their advanced degree program.  For more information on Financial Aid available to WKU Graduate Students, visit The Graduate School Financial Resources, WKU's Office of Financial Aid or FAFSA.
