Tuition & Costs

2021-2022 Tuition Rates
Tuition Category Cost Per Credit Hour
In-State Students $179/credit hour
Out-of-State Students: From Contiguous Counties* $358/credit hour
Out-of-State Students: Other Out-of-State Students $627/credit hour
Mandatory Fee** (all students): $8/credit hour
Distance Learning Course Charge*** $20/credit hour

What's With the ***?

Great question!


The first * is for contiguous counties. Contiguous counties are those which border Kentucky. Students from these counties pay a special tuition rate. Students from Reciprocity Counties pay in-state tuition.

Next, the ** is the KCTCS BuildSmart Investment for Kentucky Competitiveness fee.

Then *** is the Distance Learning Course Charge. You'll pay this fee if you have classes with online portions, like Learn on Demand or Learn by term. Don't worry, 'hybrid' classes don't pay this fee.

Student Responsibility

If your plans have changed, and you're not going to attend class, you'll need to officially withdraw. Check the academic calendar of the delivery college (in KCTCS) to see the official withdraw schedule.

Students who have not fully paid financial obligations to BCTC or to any division or organization of BCTC will not be permitted to register for future credit or non-credit offerings, receive transcripts, transfer credits to another institution, or graduate.

BCTC will pursue collection of all outstanding accounts pursuant to its business procedures.

Accounts that remain delinquent may be referred to outside agencies for collection and are subject to additional fees and costs.

BCTC makes every effort to include relevant, timely, and accurate information in its publications. However, BCTC reserves the right to make changes in its calendar, admissions policies, expenses, programs, curricula, course descriptions, or any other matters addressed or not addressed in this publication. Prospective students and enrolled students should check with the college's Offices of Admissions, Registrar, and/or Bursar's Office to learn of any such changes.

All delinquencies must be paid by money order, cashier's check, or cash in the Bursar's Office.
