University Fees

The following fees apply to the 2022-2023 academic year:

Application Fee

Fee is payable upon submission of application for admission. Fee is nonrefundable regardless of reason.


Acceptance/Matriculation Deposit

An acceptance deposit and a matriculation deposit are required from successful applicants. Acceptance is conditional until all fees, paperwork, and coursework is completed. Failure to submit all documents and forms by the posted due dates will result in forfeiture of seat in the upcoming class. Acceptance and matriculation deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable to another program. Students who pay the seat deposit but do not attend will have their deposit forfeited. For those who pay their deposits and matriculate, the amount will be credited to their tuition.

For VA Students: If VA funding covers the full amount of tuition and mandatory fees to the University for the term, the tuition and fee credit balance on the account, including for deposits, will be refunded once funding is received.

Students paying for tuition are strongly encouraged to pay via KCU’s online payment portal. However, if a student wishes to pay via paper check, the payment should be made payable to Kansas City University (KCU) and sent to the address below:
