Tuition and Fees

The cost of an education at the University of Kansas is very competitive with other similar programs at top academic institutions in the U.S.

The figures below do not represent a quote or total billable expenses and are to be used as a guide only. Exact costs vary from student to student depending on situation. Tuition and fees are updated in July each year.

As this is an entirely online program, the tuition and fees amounts below apply regardless of the student's physical location or state of residence.

** For 2019-2020 academic year **

  • Graduate-level tuition: $421.15 per credit hour
    48 total credit hours = $20,215.20

  • Graduate-level e-learning fee: $100.00 per credit hour
    48 total credit hours = $4,800.00

  • Student campus fees (e.g. library, records, educational support): $207.12 per semester
    6 total semesters* = $1,242.72

Total projected tuition and fees: $27,500.64

* Number of semesters depends on student's individual plan of study.

Students in this program are required to have a computer that meets the minimum software and hardware requirements.

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 available 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 admission to KU has been completed.
