University of Kansas

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

KU is definitely a leader when it comes to providing an affordable undergraduate education. Impressively, the university offers a fouryear, fixed tuition rate meaning your tuition will never increase during your tenure. Additionally, KU proudly trumpets renewable four-year merit scholarships. These aid packages can range anywhere from $4,000 to $40,000. And, of course, undergraduates might also be eligible for state, federal or institutional scholarships and grants as well as private scholarships. When combined, these options total $62 million devoted to aid each year. With all of these sources, it’s no wonder that more than half of KU’s students graduate debt-free! KU doesn’t simply stop with an affordable price tag. The university also strives to ensure that its students are financially savvy. To that end, the school offers Student Money Management Services. Providing one-on-one sessions, class presentations and outreach, the program helps students learn how to better manage money, create a budget and reduce debt.
