Pay Tuition

Washburn Tech offers educational opportunities that you cannot afford to miss. If you are just out of high school or an adult going back to school, you will find our tuition costs among the lowest in the state. We also offer a variety of financial aid options.

If you are a high school student, who meets specific requirements, your tuition is free! Thanks to a Kansas Senate bill called Excel in CTE, the state of Kansas picks up the tab for high school students who meet Kansas residency requirements for enrollment in any tiered career technical course.  However, textbook, program and other fees may apply.

  • Tuition (post-secondary) - $116 per credit hour
  • Tuition (high school) – FREE!
  • Materials/technology fee - $18 per credit hour
  • Testing/certification/program-related fees – vary per program
  • Books/supplies/tools – vary per program
