Tuition, Fees, and Assistantships

Tuition and Fees

Current tuition and fees rates can be found at the University of Kentucky Registrar’s website. The Registrar sets these rates and should be able to answer any questions you may have on this topic.


There are currently two primary sources of funding for data-science graduate students:

  • The Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI) welcomes applications for Data Science graduate research assistantships to work with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Office of Health Data Analytics (located in Frankfort, KY). The research assistants will work with the IBI data analytics team to conduct an analysis of program outcomes to support program evaluations, financial analysis, and policy analysis for distribution to internal and extremal stakeholders. This is a full-time (20 hours a week) graduate research assistantship with an annual stipend of $26,000 and tuition/health. The start date is negotiable, and the assistantship may be renewable for multiple years. Members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. For more information, please email ds-info@cs.uky.edu.
  • Individual faculty and staff often hire our students. Such positions may or may not include tuition and are at the discretion of the hiring individual. Offers are typically made after a student has been admitted. Interested students should contact individual faculty members.
