Comité Paraguay Kansas Students


The estimated cost provided above is made in good faith as a projection of anticipated expenses for the given academic year at the time of its publishing. Definitive tuition cost is annouced yearly in July for the upcoming academic year following tuition rate approval by the Kansas Board of Regents. It is possible for actual cost to differ from the published projection.

The above estimate includes cost of tuition, fees, accommodations, meals, books, and required medical insurance. The estimate is based upon full-time enrollment of 12 credit hours per semester or 7 hours per session. These amounts are averages and may vary from student to student. Actual expenditures depend on: 1) the student's major if studying half-time academic and number of 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 a student does not study during the summer but remain in Wichita, they should budget additional money for living expenses and medical insurance (approximately $3,100). Students should bring extra money for personal expenses (such as movies, museums, shopping, etc).
