Kentucky State University has announced that it is significantly lowering the cost of tuition for students who wish to take courses over the summer months. Tuition will be reduced from $309 per credit hour to $125 per credit hour.
The university hopes that the reduction in tuition will encourage more students to take courses in the summer and thus make it easier for them to graduate and complete their degrees on time.
M. Christopher Brown II, president of Kentucky State University, stated that “one of our huge challenges in summer school attendance is the tuition rate we’ve been using. Additionally, this version of the budget from the federal government has restored year-round Pell Grants, so students will have Pell eligibility for summer, fall and spring semesters.”
