Kansas tuition rates nearly a third below national average

A recent study conducted by the Kansas Board of Regents compared the tuition rates of Kansas’ six state universities to institutions in other states for the recently concluded 2004-05 academic year. The results of the survey indicate that tuition rates in Kansas are considerably lower than the national and regional averages.

Resident tuition and fees at KU, Kansas State University and Wichita State University, the state’s three research universities, are 27 percent below the national average and 17 percent below the regional average. Resident tuition and fees at Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University and Pittsburg State University, the state’s three regional universities, are 49 percent below the national average and 40 percent below the regional average.

“Tuition remains a bargain in Kansas,” said Reginald L. Robinson, president and chief executive officer of the Kansas Board of Regents. “Tuition rates are escalating rapidly across the nation but tuition rates at Kansas universities continue to provide Kansans with an exceptional educational value, particularly when compared to the national average.”

KU, K-State and Wichita State, all members of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, averaged $4,437 for resident tuition and fees for the entire academic year while the NASULGC national average, derived from 165 member institutions, was $5,618
.
The regional tuition and fees average, derived from 16 institutions in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma, was $5,199.

Emporia State, Fort Hays State and Pittsburg State, all members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, averaged $3,077 for resident tuition and fees for the academic year, while the AASCU national average, derived from 309 member institutions, was $4,585.

The regional tuition and fees average, derived from 38 institutions in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma, was $4,121.

“Our state universities are providing a truly high-quality education to Kansans at a very reasonable price,” Robinson said.
