Online programs and courses at KU


Tuition and Fees

Online courses at KU cost the same as regular face-to-face classes. Tuition depends on your residency and degree-seeking status. Along with standard campus fees, additional fees may apply, depending on which school (College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Business, School of Education, etc.) offers the online course. Certain online degree programs may be offered at a flat rate. For more information, please visit the KU tuition and fee calculator or the Registrar's Office.


Billing is handled the same way as in-person courses. Your bill is due near the beginning of the semester. KU offers a variety of payment options.

Financial aid

Degree-seeking students taking online courses are generally eligible for financial aid. Nondegree-seeking students are not, but there may be other financing options available.
