15 hours a semester, two semesters a year, costs $4649.34 per semester at UMKC per this link:
I don't see any living expenses on that chart, except for maybe the $172 for the student union (cafeteria fees maybe?) Are some of the other fees bogus? Probably...but I bet they are required if you want to go to school there. That adds up to 9300 bucks a year, and you have not bought a single textbook, or paid any rent, or auto expense, or anything.
