It's Close:  With 4 campuses, we are close to the populations in our 5 county (Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin, and Pike) service area.

Lower Costs:  Our tuition is the lowest in the state-less than half of what you would pay at a four-year university. For more information on cost, please access Affording College.

In-State Tuition:  All military-affiliated students using the GI BillĀ®, current service members and their spouses whose home of record is Kentucky will receive in-state tuition. Online classes are available at in-state tuition rates for all students.

Online Classes:  KCTCS is the largest provider of online learning in Kentucky. We currently offer programs (degrees, diplomas, and certificates) that can be completed fully online, an option suitable for students who work, have childcare needs or other scheduling conflicts.
