Tuition and Fees

The cost of an education at the University of Kansas is competitive with other top doctoral programs in physical therapy.

A $400 non-refundable tuition fee deposit is required to reserve a spot in the physical therapy class at KU.

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

For more details about tuition and fees, please see the Office of the Registrar's website. All figures provided here are intended for informational purposes only and do not constitute a quote, promise or official estimate of the cost to study in the program. Additional fees and expenses not listed here may also be required, and tuition and fees are determined by the Kansas Board of Regents and the University of Kansas. All costs are subject to change without notice.

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.
