Tuition

KU provides a cost estimator (based on credit hours, student fees, residency status, etc.) that prospective and current students can use to calculate fees. The calculator is here: affordability.ku.edu/costs. Further information about tuition and other fees is available on the KU Affordability website, affordability.ku.edu.

Financial Aid

The Museum Studies Program has a small pool of scholarship funds available, and some funding opportunities, such as teaching assistantships, are available to KU graduate students in general. Students are also encouraged to contact the Museum Studies Program for other possible resources. Many of our students find career-related jobs and paid internships on campus or in nearby communities. 

The University of Kansas Financial Aid and Scholarships (FAS) office serves students, families, and the community by providing financial aid and scholarship information and resources to assist students in achieving their educational goals. Learn more on the Financial Aid website.

The University of Kansas is committed to providing programs and activities to all persons, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, age, or veteran status.
