Certificate courses through Kansas State University Global Campus are assessed at a fixed tuition rate regardless of residency status. Tuition for the 2016/2017 academic year is $626.60 per credit hour ($1,879.80 per three credit hour course). Textbooks and supplemental materials are required for each course. These materials are the responsibility of the student.


New sessions begin twice a year, in August and in January. 

Courses may be directly applied to K-State's Personal Financial Planning master's degree program. In addition to enrolling through Global Campus, students interested in enrolling for college credit must apply to, and be accepted into, K-State's Graduate School.
