University of Kansas

The first two years of KU's five-year tuition strategy achieved the goals that were identified in 2002:
  • Provide much-needed new funding for high priority academic program enhancements;
  • Generate funds for need-based KU Tuition Grants; and
  • Avoid using tuition as a dollar-for-dollar substitute for reduced state funding.

KU's FY 2005 tuition proposal, the third year of the five-year strategy, has been highly successful in achieving its goals and has had no negative effect on overall enrollment, which from Fall 2001 to Fall 2003 increased by 1,082 students, or 3.8 percent. KU is confident that the third and subsequent years will be similarly successful at enhancing the academic experience for students while, for the most part, holding harmless those who have the greatest financial need.
