New out-of-state undergraduates interested in attending the forensic science program in the fall of 2017 can get reduced tuition as part of EKU's new SMART program. The SMART Program will save them nearly $8,000 off annual out-of-state tuition costs. Students from SMART-designated states who have a high school GPA of 2.5 and an ACT composite of 18 or SAT total of 940 or higher will be charged a tuition of $5,000 per semester ($10,000 per year).  

Qualified transfer students whose home of record (residency) is from one of the SMART states may transfer to EKU and participate in the SMART program. Transfer students receiving the SMART Rate are not eligible for other transfer scholarships but may qualify for federal aid as well as departmental scholarships and foundation scholarships offered by EKU.

When combined with EKU's very affordable housing rates and meal plansstudents will discover that EKU's total cost of attendance is likely less expensive than choosing to stay in-state, allowing them to go away for college while paying less. EKU offers a high-quality residential educational experience that is second to none!
