The amount you will pay as a KCTCS student depends on whether you’re a resident of Kentucky and how many classes you take. Tuition is generally due before you begin classes, but our payment plan gives you the option of making payments over time. Additional charges for customized courses and services may apply.  Contact your local KCTCS college for a complete listing.
