Universal RA/GA Tuition Rates

The Graduate School provides projections for RA and GA tuition scholarship rates. Due to the unpredictability of tuition costs, we periodically review and revise these rates in an effort to provide estimates for grant and budget planning.

The Graduate School will pay the standard graduate tuition rate each fall and spring semester. Regardless of projections, we reserve the right to change the actual recharged amount in order to prevent a deficit on Graduate School expenditures for RA/GA tuition. These changes will be reflected during the RA/GA invoice process each semester.

The schedule of RA/GA tuition:

Please see that these tuition rates are incorporated into all future grant proposals, as appropriate. For those current grants that can be revised, grantees should increase the amount of the tuition paid by the grant for future years. Training grants previously were recharged at full cost, including out-of-state tuition; as of fall 2008, Sponsored Projects

Accounting and OSPA have clarified that training grant tuition is not included in the Universal Tuition program. Tuition for training grants should be handled on a SAG form via UK Student Financial Aid.
