Fees and Expenses
Tuition and Fees - All fees are collected as part of the process of enrollment. The fee amounts are subject to change by the Board of Regents at any time. Tuition amount is no longer based on course number, but student's career. Following are the 2013 Fall semester tuition and fees for graduate students at Lawrence:
Architecture Differential Tuition *
$44.65 per credit hour is charged for all architecture courses (including UBPL courses).
Lawrence Required Campus Fees:
$73.51 per credit for enrollments of 5 or less hours. For enrollments of more than 5 hours a flat rate of $441.05 will be assessed.
Payment of the above fees entitles the student to instruction in classes, to necessary dispensary care for ordinary illnesses and special medical services at nominal rates at Watkins Memorial Hospital, to the use of the Kansas Union, to admission at student rates (if any) to most campus events within the limits of available seating, and to participation in other University activities.
Housing - University residence hall accommodations (room only) for the academic year are available to graduate students. Costs range from $4,162 to $7,020 for 9 months, depending upon the hall selected and the services requested (e.g., single occupancy). Jayhawker Towers are on-campus apartments which offer continuous occupancy. Costs for 9 months range from $3,390 to $4,328 for 4-person apartments to $5,800 to $7,464 for 2-person apartments. Purchase of meal plans for both residence halls and Jayhawker Towers range from $2,930 to $3,964. The University has 300 family student apartments with one, two or three bedrooms ranging from $510 to $856 per month. Information and furniture rental options can be obtained from the K.U. Student Housing Department. The rental cost of apartments in Lawrence varies considerably, with the majority falling between $350 and $700 per month.
