Tuition for the Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography program is two-thousand, eight-hundred dollars ($2,800.00) per semester for the 5-semester, 21-month program. Student fees include library, student health, and KU Medical Center campus activity fees, plus disability insurance.
The sonographer in training is responsible for the payment of each semester’s tuition and fees by the due date indicated on the university-generated invoice. All requests to withdraw must be in writing and presented to the program director. Any tuition and fees adjustment will follow the tuition and fees adjustment policy. Books*, parking, uniforms, etc., are additional expenses required to participate in the program, and are the responsibility of the student.
Tuition and fees are determined by the Kansas Board of Regents and the University of Kansas, and are subject to change without notice.
* Book costs are not listed due to varying costs. Books are returnable and money refunded will be based on the condition of the book. Check with the KU Bookstore for specific requirements for book returns.
Financial aid is available for students who qualify. Students should not wait to be accepted into an academic program to begin the financial aid process. Even if the admission application deadline for the intended program is after March 1, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) and KU financial aid documents by the March 1 priority deadline. These documents are required for students intending to enter a program this year. Some financial aid grants and low interest loans have limited funding. If you apply for financial aid after the priority deadline, any remaining financial aid will be awarded as available.
Even if financial aid will not be requested, students are encouraged to file the FAFSA annually (same timeline as above). The School of Health Professions has scholarship funds (awarded in the spring for the next academic year starting in fall) for students based on merit, financial need, or both. The FAFSA enables the School to consider all scholarship funds available. The FAFSA and KU Medical Center financial aid application process must be completed annually.
University of Kansas students receiving financial aid while on the Lawrence campus must re-apply through the KU Medical Center financial aid office, because financial assistance will not be transferred from the Lawrence campus to programs in the School of Health Professions.
The total financial aid award package, including scholarships, loans, or need-based aid, cannot be finalized until the student's application materials and fee have been received and acceptance to KU has been completed.
