 Cost of Education

The amounts listed above are standard figures used for budgeting purposes and eligibility for need-based financial aid for the 2016-2017 academic year. Please note that tuition and fees, housing (for on campus residents) and board (for students with meal plans) are the only costs which are paid directly to Western Kentucky University. If a student chooses to charge his/her books to the university bill, this charge will also be reflected on the bill. Room and board for on campus students are a range and are not a reflection of your actual billed charges. Books and supplies, transportation and personal costs will vary for each student and are estimates only.

**Tuition, meals, and room are charges that will appear on the student's bill. Students and parents should prepare for other indirect out-of-pocket expenses for miscellaneous personal needs and transportation.

This is a tuition grant for participating counties in some states outside of Kentucky, not all states will qualify.
