University Announces Tuition Decrease for All Students

All of us at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCU) are dedicated to achieving our vision of becoming the most student-focused medical university in the nation. We know the long-term impact that academic debt has on our students. During the past three years, our administration has been examining approaches to help control that debt and to ensure that our academic programs represent the best possible value.

As further evidence of that commitment, we are proud to share that we recently announced a modest reduction in tuition for all students for the upcoming 2015-2016 academic year. This latest tuition decrease – our second in the past three years – comes at a time when most U.S. medical universities are raising tuition by 3-5 percent. While it is unlikely we can continue this trend long-term, this is a significant achievement for our campus, but more importantly, it represents our continued commitment to our students, the next generation of physicians and scientists.
