Rockhurst University Tuition Costs

As Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences has now become part of Rockhurst University, here are important points to know about tuition costs.

  • Tuition rates for all Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences programs will remain the same as previously advertised by the College.
  • The brand-new Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences at Rockhurst University commits to maintaining all Saint Luke’s tuition rates at 2020-2021 levels with increases of no more than 3% annually.
  • Rockhurst University 1st and 2nd-year pre-nursing students: “Pre-nursing” students at Rockhurst University (Rockhurst University students planning on entering the BSN program in their 3rd and 4th years) will pay Rockhurst University tuition (minus all merit and need-based financial aid) while completing all pre-nursing, pre-requisite and core courses. After completing all nursing admissions requirements and if accepted into the Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences BSN program, students will then pay the Saint Luke’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program tuition rates.
  • Note: BSN program tuition is not reduced by merit scholarship aid, but students in the program are eligible to apply for need-based scholarships.
