Base tuition information for 2020-2021 year is available on the K-State Online Tuition and Fees page. 

Special Fee Structure for 2020-21 Academic Year
To assist our students during the COVID-19 outbreak, we are reducing online tuition and eliminating distance fees for many programs.


Total Cost of an Online Course

You can find the current cost of a course, including all fees, by using the Class Search. The cost shown in the description of each course is the total cost for the course. 

On-Campus Courses

Most on-campus courses are assessed at a tuition rate based on your resident/nonresident status. Exception: On-campus summer and Intersession courses are assessed a $12 per credit hour course fee.

Proctoring Fees

Some courses may require you to take proctored exams and most proctor services require students to pay a fee. If your course includes exams that require a proctor, you will be contacted by K-State Global Campus prior to the start of the semester. Learn more about proctored exams and choosing a proctor.
