Tuition & Aid

Quality education doesn't have to cost a fortune. Learn about program fees and tuition costs for our doctorate program.

The cost of an education at the University of Kansas is very competitive with other similar programs at top academic institutions in the U.S.

Tuition and Fees

As this is an entirely online program, the tuition and fees for KU's Doctor of Clinical Nutrition degree are the same regardless of a student's state of residence. The program is 48 total credit hours, but the number of semesters depends on a student's individual plan of study. Visit the Registrar's Office for current tuition rates and required campus fees.

We encourage you to review scholarship opportunities for current students offered by the School of Health Professions

Apply for Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for students who qualify. Students should not wait to be accepted into an academic program to begin the financial aid process. Even if the application deadline for the intended program is later in the year, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline.

Some financial aid grants and low-interest loans have limited funding. After the priority deadline, any remaining financial aid will be awarded as available.

Even if financial aid will not be requested, students are encouraged to file the FAFSA annually (same timeline as above). The School of Health Professions has scholarship funds available for students based on merit, financial need, or both. The FAFSA enables the school to consider all scholarship funds available. The FAFSA must be completed annually.

The total financial aid award package, including scholarships, loans, or need-based aid, cannot be finalized until the student's application materials and fee have been received and admission to KU has been completed.
