May intersession and summer classes will continue to be taught remotely due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19. Provost Chuck Taber said online course fees will be reduced “significantly.”

Tuition will remain at the current rate, but Global Campus and college and departmental online fees will be suspended. A $70 per credit hour fee will be implemented instead.

Fees for classes that would normally be taught on-campus will remain at their current rates.

In addition, students taking summer classes will not be charged a privilege fee, campus infrastructure fee or summer school fee.

“By making this decision now, we can provide some certainty to you and to our students as they make their summer educational plans,” Taber said in a K-State Today press release. “We do not want to repeat our disruptive spring experience of transitioning from in-person to remote classes in one week. We believe this certainty combined with reduced online fees will help with enrollment.”
