Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
I believe that I am getting an excellent education. I do not see this education experience as a waste of money. I think it is priceless.
Eldina from Saint Louis, MO
It is definitely expensive. Anyone can tell you that, but it is so worth it and once you're here, you understand why it is so expensive.
Heather
Our university has the best psychology department in the state of Kansas. Our school literally is the best secret in Kansas.
Brittany from Gardner, KS
At first look, the expenses of Baker look pretty scary! However, I soon found that my money could not be better spent. I feel like I am getting an high quality education with teachers that care about my needs and future. At least once everyday, I will be walking somewhere on campus and I run into one of my professors, and they will always stop to say Hi Rachel! How are you today?. It's that caliber of personal attention that makes this place, the place to be!
