Learn costs and financial aid options for KU's doctor of audiology (Au.D.) program.

You'll find the cost of an education at the University of Kansas is competitive with other top doctoral programs in audiology. 

See below for tuition, fees and other financial information, in addition to financial aid and scholarship resources. The costs below are an estimate of expenses for full-time students finishing the audiology degree program in four years.

The amounts listed below are based on the KU Comprehensive Fee Schedule. These figures are provided as a guide only and are not an official quote of costs. This information subject to change by the Kansas Board of Regents and the University of Kansas.

Tuition and fees differ based on the location of specific courses on the KU Lawrence campus and/or at the KU Medical Center campus. The higher campus rate was used in the table below. Students are assessed both campus fees if courses are taken in the same semester at both locations.

You pay tuition and fees at the beginning of each semester. Visit the Registrar's comprehensive fee schedule for complete, current tuition information. The Kansas Board of Regents establishes tuition and fees, and they may change at any time without notice.
