Red Square Means In-State Tuition is Most Difficult Difficulty

Earning in-state in Kentucky is pretty tough but definitely do-able for somebody who is financing their own education anyway.  The biggest requirement is paying your own way, and that can typically include a healthy amount of student loans but it also requires work.  If working a lot at the best job you can find in Kentucky for year while either going part-time or no-time to college…if that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then you’re generally out of luck.

For those hard working types who are willing to earn a great education, Kentucky may be for you.
