The cost of an education at the University of Kansas is very competitive with other top nuclear medicine technology certificate programs in the U.S.

This program is three semesters in length and tuition is applied as a flat rate per semester (not by the credit hours of each course). All students pay the same amount regardless of residency. Student fees include library, student health, and KU Medical Center campus activity fees, and disability insurance.

Tuition and fees are paid at the beginning of each semester. If the student should decide to withdraw from the program, written notification submitted to the program director is required. Any tuition and fees adjustment will follow the tuition and fees adjustment policy.

Tuition and fees are established by the Kansas Board of Regents, the University of Kansas, and KU Medical Center, and are subject to change.

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.
