The specific information that must be disclosed for each gainful employment program is as follows:

Planning for a postsecondary education can seem like an insurmountable task, and sometimes it seems that the financial aid office has a language all its own. The purpose of the Net Price Calculator is to give first time, full-time students (and their parents) a better idea of what their “estimated” educational cost will be.

The estimates provided by the Net Price Calculator will provide you a general snapshot of what you can expect for planning purposes, should you enroll in a Kentucky Horseshoeing School program. The estimate provided is based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in that program in the most recent award year (e.g., 2011-2012). It is important to understand, however, that cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year, and awards are determined on an individual basis. Moreover, not all students receive financial aid. Therefore using the information provided, while helpful for planning, may only provide a partial overview of what you can expect to receive in financial aid.

To calculate the net price for the largest KHS program you are considering attending, click the appropriate link below.

Also, we have included the following glossary terms below, which may help explain the meaning of the terms used in the Net Price Calculator and how they relate to you.

  • Estimated total price of attendance: Also referred to as the Cost of Attendance (COA). The cost of attendance is based upon average costs and educational expenses for a student in your category. The cost of attendance helps us to determine your financial aid award, but does not reflect the amount you owe KHS. You will receive a bill that shows your actual charges.
  • Estimated Tuition & Fees: This number represents the cost of tuition for classes and any applicable fees.
  • Estimated Room & Board: This amount is an average figure based on information gathered by KHS each year. It is expected that additional financial aid proceeds will be used to pay living expenses.
  • Estimated Books and Supplies: This is an average amount you might spend on books and supplies. This amount is not actually billed to your student account.
  • Estimated Other Expenses: Also referred to as Miscellaneous and Personal. This is an estimate of what you might spend during the school year on personal items, clothing, recreation and travel, and is not an amount billed by KHS.
  • Estimated total Grant Aid: The median amount of grant aid, which is aid that does not have to be repaid (also known as gift aid) received by KHS students in your category. This amount includes Federal Aid (such as Pell Grant), as well as State & Institutional grant aid. It does not include any outside scholarships you may receive.
  • Estimated net price: This is the price of attendance minus any grant aid you receive.
