Tuition and charges are determined by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System Board of Regents. For payment deadlines, refer to the college academic calendar.

Tuition Deadline

The tuition deadline is four weeks prior to the first day of classes for each semester.  Tuition is assessed as soon as you register for classes, so as soon as you are registered, you have an obligation to pay tuition to Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC).  Students who do not pay tuition on time or make payment arrangements (payment plan, financial aid, etc.) may be assessed a late fee and/or may be canceled from class allowing other students who are ready to pay the opportunity to register.  If you are canceled, you may not be able to reenroll in your class!

Tuition is charged per credit hour, so any changes to your schedule (drop a class, add a class, etc.) will result in recalculation of your tuition charge.  Late fees and/or cancellation of classes apply even if you make initial payment but add a class later and do not pay for it.

The Tuition Office is responsible for collecting tuition--not the Financial Aid Office--so if you have questions about your billing statement or making payment, contact the Tuition Office.  A payment plan is available.

Your only billing statement will be emailed to your student email account indicating the tuition amount due as well as anticipated aid.  Anticipated aid includes expected financial aid (grants, accepted loans, some scholarships and KEES).

Compare your actual financial aid (from Student Self-Service) to your tuition balance.  If your actual aid is more than enough to cover your tuition balance, you do not need to make a tuition payment. Your tuition will be paid automatically from your financial aid. If your actual aid is not enough to cover the tuition balance, the difference must be paid by the tuition deadline.  The Tuition Office will help you determine the proper amount to pay.

If your tuition will be paid from financial aid funds, your tuition balance will not change until after the semester begins, enrollment is confirmed, and aid is disbursed to your account.  At that time, your account balance will change to reflect the aid applied and any funds left over will be refunded to you.

Paying Tuition

Tuition may be paid in person to the Tuition Office/Cashier in Building H on the Main Campus, at the Glasgow (Health) Campus, or online via Student Self Service.

SKYCTC also offers a payment plan through a third party, Nelnet, for students to pay their tuition over a period of time. A debit/credit card or checking account is required, and a $25 enrollment fee is processed for each semester the student uses the plan. Payments are automatically charged to the debit or credit card or processed as an ACH payment through the checking account. The payment plan is only offered for specific dates. Please see below for more details.

SKYCTC as a member of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), makes every effort to include relevant, timely and accurate information in its publications.  However, at times, due to system mandated changes, information may differ from what is published.  Every attempt will be made to inform students in a timely manner.  Please check the KCTCS catalog for out-of-state and contiguous county tuition rates.

Tuition and fees are subject to change.
