Net Price Calculator
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.

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.

KHS Refund Policy
Application fee is non-refundable.
A student may receive a pro-rated refund of tuition if during the course of the class a medical condition, diagnosed by a licensed physician, is serious enough to warrant withdrawal from the program. Before a refund is approved, a written letter from the physician must be submitted to the school director of facilities stipulating that the diagnosed medical condition requires withdrawal from the class and is chronic enough to prevent the student from returning within one year of the diagnosis date to complete his or her training. Release does not apply to any pre-existing conditions. If the student is required to leave the school due to family emergency or hardship, tuition will not be refunded, however, the student will be allowed to complete his or her training at no additional charge when circumstances allow.
50% of tuition monies paid by applicant will be refunded if withdrawal is requested within seven days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment. Any refund due to student will be processed within 45 days from date of completed withdrawal. Students wishing to withdraw prior to course completion must follow the withdrawal policies listed in the Consumer Information Guide available on our website or from the admissions office upon request.
If it becomes necessary for KHS to alter a class schedule for any reason after the student has been accepted, and the student is unable to accommodate the new schedule or unable to attend an alternate class within one year of the original date, a refund of the $500 deposit will be processed as efficiently as possible.
Receiving Veteran Administration Benefits: If a student who is receiving an educational assistance allowance from the VA fails to enter the course, withdraws, or is discontinued there from at any time prior to the completion of the course, the amount charged for tuition and fees for the portion of the course completed shall not exceed the pro rata portion of the total charges for the course that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to its total length.
