Tuition and Fees

Online courses at KU generally cost the same as in-person courses. Tuition depends on your residency and degree-seeking status. Along with academic services fees, additional fees may apply depending on which school (College of Liberal Arts & 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:
