K-State's 2021-2022 tuition and fees rates now available online
Submitted by President Richard Myers and Provost Charles Taber
Kansas State University is moving to a simplified and streamlined tuition structure for the 2021-2022 academic year. Tuition and fees rates are now available to view online at k-state.edu/costs. The new structure, recently approved by the Kansas Board of Regents, goes into effect this fall.
In building this new tuition and fees structure, one of our key goals was making it easier for you to determine cost of attendance. The new structure provides you with more flexibility to take courses in different formats throughout your time at the university.
Given these goals, we wanted to highlight some of the changes we’ve made for this new structure:
- The Global Campus course fee, previously assessed on all courses taken online, has been eliminated.
- The summer/intersession fees have also been eliminated, as has the Olathe campus fee.
- The new tuition and fees structure charges by program type — campus-based or online — versus by individual course delivery format, offering you more flexibility to choose the course format that works best for you.
- We have merged the Manhattan campus academic infrastructure fee into the base tuition rate.
- Some course fees have also been merged into the existing college/departmental course fee structure, making your tuition bill easier to understand.
- Finally, we have reduced and renamed the Campus Privilege Fee assessed at our Manhattan and Polytechnic campuses. The fee’s new name, the Student Services fee, better reflects what you gain from the fee assessment on these campuses.
This new tuition and fees structure is based on a redistribution of our historical tuition and fees rates. There is no increased pricing to cover higher operating costs, and no new fees are being introduced.
As always, if you have any concerns about financing your education, we encourage you to reach out to your financial aid advisor. And if you have any questions about K-State’s new tuition and fees structure or your bill when you receive it later this summer, please contact the Cashier’s Office.
