Part-Time Students - All summer students are considered part-time students and as such there are no Non-Resident Reduced Rates applicable. (See description of each fee below).

Summer Sessions - Costs may vary based on the course location as designed by the school (e.g., Distance Education, Off-Campus Courses, On-Campus Courses).

  • Distance Education - Courses approved and designed with a minimum 80% online (not just elected to do online between professor and student).  These courses assess tuition, technology fee, and instructional service.  Non-PA Residents are offered a discount for distance education courses to meet 102% of the in-state rate.
  • Off-Campus Courses - Courses designed as off-campus are Internships or those held at another location for the course duration as designed in the course creation.  These courses assess tuition, technology fee, and instructional service. 
  • On-Campus Courses - Courses held on the campus, Blended courses, Independent Study courses and Individualized Instruction courses.

Dropping Classes / Withdrawing from Classes If aid is utilized as a form of payment and you withdraw completely, a calculation is required to see if you can retain any of the aid.  Refunds that may have been issued, may be due back to KU.  The Add-Drop period is typically the first 2 days of the session.  Any withdrawal after that may reduce charges and may not depending on the remaining enrollment for the summer.  We encourage you to look at the withdrawal page and call our office with any questions.

When are my Summer Charges Due?

The chart below shows when your payment is due.  Classes will be dropped shortly after the due date, do not delay.  To ensure your classes are safe, be sure your payment posts on MyKU before or ON the due date, that your payment plan is set up and in good standing on or before the due date, or that any pending aid is actually showing as pending aid in MyKU (if aid is not showing as pending we are not considering it as payment - speak to Financial Aid).  If classes are dropped, you will be required to prepay in order to register again for classes based on availability at that time.
