Quality education doesn't have to cost a fortune. Find out more about fees and tuition for the research doctorate degrees in audiology and speech-language pathology.

The cost of an advanced research doctoral degree at KU is very competitive with other top programs in the U.S.

Graduate teaching assistantship (GTA) and graduate research assistantship (GRA) positions are available to students. The number and type of available positions vary from year to year.

Additional opportunities for financial assistance are available for students.

Tuition and fees differ based on the location of specific courses on the KU Lawrence campus and/or at the KU Medical Center campus. The higher campus rate was used in the table below. Students are assessed both campus fees if courses are taken in the same semester at both locations.
