The cost of an education is affordable at the University of Kansas. Tuition, fees and other cost information can be found here, including financial aid and scholarship resources.
Tuition and Fees vary depending on degree program, level of course and other factors. If you start your academic career at KU as a freshman, you can estimate your tuition costs at the Lawrence campus tuition site. Your tuition will remain constant as you continue your education at the KU Medical Center campus for your junior and senior years. However, students at KU Medical Center have fees for these 2 years which differ considerably from Lawrence campus students. If you begin your education at an institution outside KU and transfer to the KU CLS program, your tuition follows the KU Medical Center tuition structure (your fees are the same as KU students once you arrive to KU Medical Center).
Other fees include:
Tuition and Fee Deposit $100
Lab courses $165/course (8 total courses=$1,320)
Molecular diagnostics track lab fee: $300
Estimated incidental costs: $200 per semester
Student health insurance: $850 (required if not covered by other health insurance plan)
Online course fee $55/credit hour (9 total credit hours=$495)
The amounts listed are general approximations for 2013-2014 and are provided as a guide only. All figures are subject to change by the Kansas Board of Regents and the University of Kansas.
Scholarships in the department are available to second-year (senior) students. Students must be accepted into the CLS program at KU to apply for these scholarships.
Kansas High School Graduates:
June Hull-Sherrid Fund #2 Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants and are often of substantial value.
Non-Kansas High School Graduates:
June Hull-Sherrid Fund #1 Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants and are based on financial need or scholastic achievement.
Bertha Martha Conner Fund
Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants and are based on financial need or scholastic achievement.
Alan Voos Memorial Scholarship Fund
Scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants and are based on financial need.
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.
