Tuition

The approximate cost per student to attend the Kanakuk Institute is $20,000.

However, through the generosity of our donors, each student will receive a $7,500 scholarship to attend. In exchange for this scholarship, students will participate in our Work Study Program.

Tuition for students of the Kanakuk Institute Class of 2021 is $12,500 after the scholarship is applied.

Please note:
Any payment made toward a specific student’s tuition is not tax deductible, thus the Institute is unable to issue gift receipts or 1098T forms for tuition.  
This tuition covers room, board, and class fees (including the 12 hours of transfer credit to John Brown University and/or the the transfer credit to Southern and Southeastern Seminaries).

Work Study Program

Every student at the Kanakuk Institute is eligible to receive a $7,500 scholarship. As part of the scholarship, students are asked to spend two hours a week completing a campus job. We have more than 40 campus jobs to choose from and students will have the opportunity to select a job based on their interests and schedule.

Students will also be assigned a meal crew, showing up early to one meal a week to help serve, and clean the dining hall after.

You will have the opportunity to enroll in the work study program when you complete your enrollment paperwork.

Student Loan Option via John Brown University Masters Program

If a student chooses to pursue a Master’s degree with John Brown University or another partner institution, the additional credit hours needed for degree completion will run at the specific University’s tuition rate. Learn more.

*Students enrolling in the John Brown University Masters Program are eligible to receive student loans for their entire tuition (including KI’s $12,250 cost). Those students not enrolling in JBU are not eligible to receive student loans.
