Tuition, Fees, and Scholarships


Estimate your tuition and fees to learn more about the potential costs of attending the University of Kansas School of Business.

For an explanation of the course fees included in your tuition estimate, continue reading below.

Course Fees (Differential Tuition)

Base tuition is determined at the state and university level. Subject to approval by the University and Board of Regents, schools may charge course fees (previously called differential tuition) and all funds from those fees directly benefit the students in the respective school. In 2004 the students of the School of Business approved the addition of course fees to enhance the quality of a KU business education.

Consistent with guidelines in the course fee approval process, course fees:

  • Pay for faculty
  • Provide experiential learning activities
  • Improve student advising and career services
  • Provide student assistantships and scholarships
