Dual Credit


Tuition for a college course taken through WKU Dual Credit is $156* ($52 per credit hour). This is a substantial savings, considering that in-state tuition at WKU is typically $1,143 per course. 

There is no application fee for dual credit students.

Tuition Billing and Payment Process

Students will receive an e-bill from WKU for their dual credit course(s). This e-bill will be sent to the student’s university email account. In order to access their WKU email accounts students should set up their TopNet account at and then their email account at Tutorials for TopNet and WKU’s email can be accessed at

Payment for dual credit courses should be remitted to WKU by the date indicated on the e-bill. If tuition has not been paid by October 1 (Fall Semester Enrollment) or March 1 (Spring Semester Enrollment) the student will receive a financial warning.  A hold is placed on unpaid accounts preventing further course registration and access to WKU services. If a student wishes to withdraw from a dual credit course, it is their responsibility to notify the Dual Credit office.  Failure to officially withdraw from a course, if desired, may result in earning a failing grade and/or a financial obligation.  For questions about your account or requests for withdraw, email or call 270-745-3067. 

Note: Dual credit tuition does not include the cost of textbooks, which varies depending on the course.
