Summer 2020 Tuition and Fees

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Kansas State University summer school courses across all of our campuses will be administered online. In recognition of this unprecedented time, we have developed a revised summer 2020 tuition and fee structure for undergraduate and graduate courses:

  • Base tuition rates for our individual campuses remain the same.
    • The base rate for all students, regardless of residency status, will be the in-state rate. See base tuition rates for undergraduate and graduate students listed below.
  • College/departmental course fees will remain the same.
  • Online campus and online college/departmental fees are rolled into a standard reduced fee of $70 per credit hour, a fee that will be administered across all summer 2020 courses.
  • Campus-based fees, including the campus privilege fee on the Manhattan and Polytechnic campuses, the academic infrastructure fee on the Manhattan campus, and the Olathe campus fee, have been eliminated for summer 2020. The Summer School fee has also been eliminated.
  • Exceptions to the information above:
