Our tuition rate is significantly more affordable compared to the four-year public and private schools. Thus, there is added economic value in beginning your education at Bluegrass. Students can complete general education requirements and transfer to a four-year public or private school, earn a credential such as an associate degree and transfer on to a four-year public or private school, or earn a credential in a high-wage, high-demand field and enter the workforce.
