IMPORTANT NOTE: The above estimated amounts include tuition, fees, accommodations, meals, books, and medical insurance. The estimate is based upon full-time enrollment of 12 credit hours per semester at a cost of $554.54 per credit hour.  Students must take at least 15 credit hours per semester in order to graduate in four years.  These amounts are averages and may vary from student to student. Actual expenditures depend on: 1) the student's major and credit hours enrolled, 2) the residence hall or apartment in which the student lives, 3) whether or not the student has a roommate,and 4) the student’s meal plan.  International students are required to have medical insurance. Students who do not have medical insurance when they arrive may purchase it during enrollment.  If you do not study during the summer but remain in Wichita, you should budget additional money for living expenses and medical insurance (approximately $2,870).  Students should bring extra money for personal expenses (such as movies, museums, shopping, etc).    View All College and Departmental Fees
