Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) has announced that tuition will remain flat throughout the 2018-19 term, which runs through Aug. 2019. The CUKC Board of Trustees, which addresses tuition on a year-by-year basis, made the decision.
The news about tuition remaining static is just the latest in a series of positive events realized by the University in the last year.
- The College of Health Sciences launched two new degree programs, an A.A.S. in Radiologic Technology, and an A.A.S. in Occupational Therapy Assistant.
- The University expanded its Force Sensing Table Technology Lab after receiving a second table that measures the amount of force used to administer a chiropractic adjustment.
- In August, CUKC welcomed its largest class to enter the Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree program in the last 30 years.
- In 2018, CUKC students in the D.C. program continued their exemplary performance on board exam completion rates, outperforming all chiropractic schools nationwide. During the most recent, four-year assessment period, CUKC students had an average completion rate of 95 percent.
- According to the CUKC Office of Financial Aid, CUKC students continue to have one of the lowest student loan default rates among all colleges and universities in the nation.
"Each of these successes highlight the progress made by the University in its ongoing quest to provide an exceptional educational experience in chiropractic and the health sciences. This would not be possible without the commitment to excellence among those in the CUKC community," Alex Bach, vice president of enrollment management said. "A student body that is focused and engaged, along with a dedicated faculty, staff and administration that puts students first, have made all of these advancements possible."
Tuition rates for students at CUKC is similar to that incurred by students at other post-secondary institutions. The primary expense is for the classes associated with the degree programs offered. In addition, there are ancillary fees for technology, laboratory supplies, insurance, graduation and student activities. Ultimately, tuition also funds additional instructors, research materials for the curriculum, and a variety of other things necessary to provide a quality learning experience at CUKC. Additional expenses for the University are covered by community support and institutional advancement efforts.
A private, nonprofit institution, Cleveland University-Kansas City has been educating health care professionals since 1922. Through degrees offered in its College of Chiropractic, and College of Health Sciences, CUKC prepares its students to be leaders in health care.
