WKU offers a SPECIAL tuition rate for those CURRENTLY serving in the Military!

 spirit makes the master

Western Kentucky University offers a military tuition rate of $250 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate courses to all service members currently on Active Duty, serving in a Reserve unit (excluding those on Individual Ready Reserve) or in a component of the National Guard.  This tuition rate is applied when you utilize Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (DOD TA) through your service branch or when you utilize state-funded tuition assistance through your guard unit. Any semester that you are not utilizing TA, you will need to request this rate.

 Please note: The WKU Military Tuition Rate of $250 per credit hour does not apply to Doctoral course work and can not be used retroactively. It must be requested and applied during the semester it is intended to be used for.

Currently serving military students who are unable to use DOD TA:

In recognition of your service, WKU will still extend to you the military tuition rate of $250 per credit hour.  To utilize this special rate, the following rules apply:

  1. You, the service member, are responsible for the costs

  2. Must be admitted to WKU unless you are a GoArmyEd participant

  3. All Active Duty, Reservists (excluding Individual Ready Reserve) and National Guard members are eligible

  4. Your current status must be verified by either

    • WKU Military Student Services (Tate Page Hall 408)

    • Military Programs Coordinator (Fort Knox -Layaou Hall, Bldg. 65- Room103 )

  5. You must complete the application at the time of registration for EACH semester you are not utilizing DOD TA.
