Cost of Study
The Kansas Board of Regents establishes tuition and fees at the University of Kansas. For more information about tuition and fees, contact the Registrar's Office at the University of Kansas, or visit www.ku.edu/tuition/. The University's tuition and fee amounts are subject to change and vary across campus and academic programs.
A few general university non-teaching stipends and teaching assistantships are available. Non-teaching stipends are awarded annually to students displaying exceptional promise in creative work. Teaching assistantships are awarded to qualified students to assist regular faculty members with teaching responsibilities. For information, especially about loans and student employment, write to the University of Kansas, Office of Student Financial Aid, 50 Strong Hall, Lawrence, KS 66045, or visit the Office of Student Financial Aid Web site.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships
Evaluation of graduate student qualifications for a teaching assistantship is based on information furnished by the student applicants. This information includes past teaching experience and/or other related professional experience. The evaluation is made by the chairperson and specific faculty who need teaching assistants.
The number of teaching assistantships varies according to departmental need. Selection is based primarily on identification of those best qualified to provide a quality experience in the studio-classroom. A secondary consideration is to render financial assistance to those in need and third consideration is to provide students with teaching experience.
