College Online Bridge Program

The College Online Freshmen Bridge program allows you to get started on your KU degree online at a lower price. All you need is a computer, a webcam, and a reliable internet connection.

Through the program, you can take up to two semesters fully online before moving to the U.S. and transitioning to on-campus study. During your first year of college most students take a similar schedule of classes – English, math, science, first-year seminar, and an elective – and many of these foundational classes are available online through the College Online Bridge program.

Tuition Costs

As an online bridge program student, you will pay a flat rate of $398 per credit hour ($1,194/ 3-credit hour course) which is about 55% less than the standard tuition cost for on-campus international students. After transitioning out of the bridge program your tuition and fees will follow the standard rate for international student tuition.

Due to the tuition reduction of this program, if you were to receive the following international scholarships they will be put on hold until you are on-campus: International Merit, International Distinction, and International Achievement. 

Students who receive the International Excellence Award still have their tuition waived during this program.
