Text - Cost of Attendance for Undergraduate Students; circles and arrows in background

The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of a student's educational expenses for their period of enrollment. It establishes average costs for different categories of students (i.e. full time vs. part time, in-state tuition vs. out of state tuition, etc) and is the cornerstone for determining a student's financial need for "need-based" grants, loans, and work-study. It also sets a limit on the total federal aid that a student may receive.

For information on Wichita State University's Tuition and Fees, please visit the Tuition and Fees website.

The Cost of Attendance estimates below are based on an undergraduate student enrolling in 28 credit hours during the Fall and Spring semester, or 14 hours in one semester only.
