Cost of Attendance

In 2007, the UK College of Medicine became one of four medical school programs in the nation to offer a tuition guarantee program. Because of this program, each entering class is guaranteed a set tuition that will remain constant for the four years they are enrolled in medical school. This was a significant step toward maintaining the affordability of a medical education.

Currently, the annual tuition for an in-state student is approximately $40,462 (2020-2021 academic year). For a full breakdown of estimated tuition, fees and living expenses, please click here or on the chart below which outlines the potential costs for each academic year.

The UK College of Medicine is committed to providing financial aid options to assist with the cost of a medical education. Options may include scholarships and/or loan programs to qualifying applicants. For more information about each visit the corresponding webpages.
