The Kentucky State University Board of Regents approved an agreement to lower tuition for out-of-state students.

The Board of Regents approved a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) to reduce non-resident tuition from $9,500 per semester to $5,775 per semester for students in the seven states contiguous to Kentucky, as well as Michigan. 

Out-of-state tuition will be reduced beginning with the Fall 2019 semester. Students under the Thorobred Promise (a four-year tuition guarantee) will have their guarantee adjusted to reflect the lower tuition levels. This initiative reduces financial barriers for students to graduate in four years.

According to Kentucky State University President M. Christopher Brown II, “This tuition reduction enables Kentucky State University to be a more competitive option for students and parents seeking a quality education at an affordable price.”

Brown also stated that recruitment strategies involving the new rate will assist the campus community and alumni in their enrollment efforts of out-of-state students.
