Midwest Student Exchange Program

Qualified freshmen who are admitted to the School of Architecture, Design and Planning are included within the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP). This means that non-resident undergraduate students admitted to any of the School’s degree programs will be charged tuition at a rate equivalent to 1.5 times the in-state or resident rate.

In order to qualify, a student must:

  1. submit a complete application to KU by November 1;
  2. be a legal resident of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota or Wisconsin;
  3. achieve a high school GPA of at least 3.25 on a 4.0 scale; and
  4. have a composite score of at least 24 on the ACT or 1160 on the SAT.

The Midwest Student Exchange Program covers up to four years of undergraduate study. To renew this special tuition rate, a student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA at KU of 3.4 and complete a minimum of at least 30 KU credit hours each academic year.
