The medical school curriculum is divided into two semesters (fall and spring) that covers the entire academic year. Medical students are assessed tuition every fall and spring semester regardless of the credit hour load enrolled. A student is assessed a minimum of eight semesters of full tuition even if the student completes the degree requirements before their May anticipated graduation date. Required Campus fees are assessed every semester that a student is enrolled. In addition to required campus fees, all medical students are assessed a required tablet fee in the first year, certain course fees during the first and second year, and a smart phone fee in the third and fourth year (Kansas City students only). The current tuition and fees amounts are posted on the KUMC Office of the Registrar website.
This document is for informational purposes and should not be considered official university policy. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.
Leave of Absence (LOA)
Please consult with your student affaris office about leave of absences in terms of re-entry into the program. The university does not have an official leave status that is reported to lenders. Depending on the length of your leave of absence, you might need to make arrangments with your lenders in terms of repayment and deferments.
