Budgeting for your degree shouldn't be difficult. Which is why we have the costs broken down for you with our standard cost of attendance estimate.

About these numbers

These costs represent an estimate of a student’s educational expenses for an academic year. Cut these numbers in half to see the cost of just one semester. Tuition rates are calculated at 21 credit hours per semester, or 42 credit hours for the full year.

Your actual costs for housing and food, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses will vary based on:

  • The number of credit hours you take
  • Whether you’re a Kansas resident
  • Your personal spending choices
  • Your travel habits
