About KTUC

For more information about KTU the school and not the corporation visit us at


KTUC is a tech focused corporation because technology is integrated into virtually every career field as well as our daily lives.  A lack of technology training inhibits a communities opportunities and is just bad public policy.


KTUC is online because a physical location requires students to travel to that location to learn. This limits the opportunity to only local communities and those with transportation.  KYTech believes that those without the ability to travel to a college likely have the greatest need for an education. 


KTUC's mission is to deliver a quality educational experience to the largest possible population at the least expense to them.  We discourage the use of any student loans and discount our low tuition for populations of greater need.  

The university has a goal that no less than 30% of all students pay nothing and those that do pay tuition pay no more than $1300 per term.

Tax Exempt 501c3

KTUC is a 501c3 tax exempt public charity according to the United States Internal Revenue Service. Donations to KTUC are tax deductible.
