As Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences becomes part of Rockhurst University—subject to approval early 2020 by the Higher Learning Commission and other regulatory bodies—here are important points to know about tuition costs.

  • Until the agreement to become one university is approved, tuition rates for all Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences programs will remain the same as previously advertised by the College.
  • Once approved, the planned 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.
  • Pre-Nursing Scholars Program (for Rockhurst University students): Students eligible for the Pre-Nursing Scholars program will pay Rockhurst University tuition (minus all merit and need-based financial aid) while completing all pre-nursing, pre-requisite courses. After completing the direct admissions requirements, students become Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences nursing students (whether the College is part of Rockhurst University at the time or not) and 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.
