Tuition and Fees: KU Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography Certificate Program

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.

Apply for Financial Aid

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 application deadline for the intended program is later in the year, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline. Some financial aid grants and low interest loans have limited funding. 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 must be completed annually.

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.
