A graduate degree can lead to higher teacher salaries (an average of $7,000 higher a year) and greater job security,1 while also opening doors to a broader variety of roles within the field of education. Without question, graduate school is an investment in your future, especially a master's degree, graduate certificate or licensure endorsement from a highly ranked, well-regarded university like the University of Kansas.2 If the cost of your ideal program at KU is a concern, know that you may be eligible for financial aid to make graduate school more affordable for you.
We've compiled a series of videos to answer your questions about financial aid for our online programs and to walk you through the process of applying for financial aid at KU. You can also explore our videos about graduate loan options.
If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact the KU Financial Aid & Scholarships Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-864-4700.
