Military Students

The University of Kentucky is continually recognized as one of the top public universities nationally for military veterans. In addition to waiving the application fee for veterans, UK provides a robust support system to help veterans determine which programs and benefits are available to them to make their education as affordable as possible.

Along with GI Bill programs, veterans can mitigate costs through the Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows degree-granting institutions to fund a percentage of tuition expenses that are matched by the VA. We’re proud to contribute the maximum percentage rate of 50% for a limited number of students per term.

Active U.S. Armed Forces military personnel who qualify for the Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA) program through Title X are eligible for the Active Military Tuition Rate of $296.50 per credit hour. Eligible students are assessed tuition and mandatory fees per credit hour for undergraduate courses.

To get a full understanding of the benefits available to Active-Duty Service Members and veterans, visit our military support page for more information.
