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.”
