Certificate courses through Kansas State University Global Campus are assessed at a fixed tuition rate regardless of residency status. The current tuition for a three-credit hour online course is $2097.60 for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please click here to find itemized tuition information. Textbooks and supplemental materials are required for each course. These materials are the responsibility of the student.


New sessions begin twice a year, in August and in January. 

Courses may be directly applied to K-State's Personal Financial Planning master's degree program. In addition to enrolling through Global Campus, students interested in enrolling for college credit must apply to, and be accepted into, K-State's Graduate School.

Tuition Payment

Following your enrollment to Kansas State University, the K-State Controller's Office will send an e-mail to your K-State e-mail account indicating your tuition invoice for the full amount is ready to be viewed on your KSIS account around the 15th of each month.

View instructions for paying your tuition, including payment options and deadlines. 

Tuition is set by the Kansas Board of Regents annually in late June or early July. Kansas State University reserves the right to change costs without prior notice upon approval by the Kansas Board of Regents.

Financial Aid

Certificate programs do not generally qualify for federal financial assistance.

Financial assistance and scholarships are available for students enrolled in degree programs.

Sponsored Students

Students with a third party paying all or part of tuition and fees should consult the Cashier's Office for proper documentation. 

Please note company reimbursement policies are between you and your employer. In the event the sponsor does not make full payment, all charges and late fees will be returned to and be the responsibility of the student.

Military Assistance

K-State accepts military and veteran's tuition assistance for distance education courses. For information on military tuition assistance, contact the Cashier's Office at 785-532-6317.
