Cost by Program

To calculate an approximate total cost of a program:

  1. Locate the total number of credit hours required to complete the program. This number can be found on the individual program pages.
  2. Subtract your transfer credit hours.
  3. Multiply the remainder by the applicable per credit hour cost as shown in the tuition and fee schedule above.

Proctoring Fees

Some courses may require you to take proctored exams. These are exams taken online or on paper that must be taken in the presence of a proctor to ensure academic integrity. This is common practice for online programs to meet accreditation requirements. Most proctor services require that students pay a fee, and it is recommended that you ask about fees when searching for your proctor. If your course includes exams that require a proctor, you will be contacted by Student and Faculty Services at K-State Global Campus prior to the start of the semester.

On-Campus Courses

Evening College and other on-campus courses, such as on-campus Intersession courses, offered through K-State Global Campus are assessed at a tuition rate that is based on resident and nonresident status and varies by course level, undergraduate or graduate.
