Investing in you
A KU degree is a valuable investment in your future. Kansas law classifies each person who is admitted to KU as a resident or nonresident. Students pay a tuition rate set annually by the Kansas Board of Regents. Required campus fees are paid by all students to support services and programs such as health, recreation, transportation, and student activities.
Understanding Residency, Tuition and Fees
In general, a student is considered a Kansas resident if they had continuous physical residency in Kansas for at least one year prior to the first day of classes, sources of support come from Kansas resources, there is intent to remain in Kansas indefinitely, the student moved to and is residing in Kansas for reasons other than educational purposes.
Tuition and Fees
KU works to keep costs low for students while providing the highest level of educational experience. The Office of the University Registrar assesses the Tuition and Fees approved by the Kansas Board of Regents.
