KSI Keeps Tuition Rates Unchanged

KSI is holding tuition rates steady again for the Fall 2011 semester. KSI has the lowest tuition rates of any accredited MS Degree Program. For four years, KSI has chosen to keep tuition rates steady in order to maintain the affordability for students. We recognize that affordability is very important to our students, especially in the current economic environment and KSI is determined to do everything possible to keep tuition rates at affordable levels.
