Please Note: Fayette Undergraduates taking at least 12 hours on campus will be charged a $50 service fee to enroll in any online classes. Those students not enrolled at least 12 hours on campus are charged at the part-time rate for on-campus classes and at the CGES rates for those classes.

Please Note: Parents may borrow a Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) up to the full Cost of Attendance (or Budget) minus any financial assistance the student is receiving. If the student has an excess of funds (more aid than the total direct cost), the balance will be given to the student as a refund. The student can use this refund as a means to pay for books, transportation or other personal spending.
