Tuition and Billing
Tuition for a course taken through Kickstart is $68 per credit hour. No payment is due at the time of registration; bills will be sent to students around the start of classes. It is important to note that the tuition for online courses does not include the cost of textbooks, which varies depending on the course.
You can also pay online with a credit card by using our Guest Payer service, which only requires your student ID and date of birth. If you decide to use the Guest Payer service, there is a 2.75% service fee.
Refunds for Kickstart courses will be based on UMSL's campus-wide fee reassessment policy. UMSL reserves the right to drop a student from their course if their tuition is not paid before the end of the semester or the student will not pass the course; in these circumstances, payment is still required and will be based on UMSL's reassessment fee and the date in which the course is dropped, which usually occurs towards the end of the semester.
