Kansas DegreeStats was developed by the Kansas Board of Regents in response to interest expressed by the Kansas Legislature to require a 'degree prospectus' be published for each postsecondary degree program in Kansas. On May 1, 2016, Governor Sam Brownback signed 2016 HB 2622 into law (K.S.A. 74-32,303), which decreed “The state board of regents shall publish degree prospectus information for each undergraduate degree program offered by each postsecondary educational institution that summarizes information and statistics on such degree program.” This website is updated annually and maintained by the Kansas Board of Regents with data submitted by each of the state’s public universities and colleges.

Kansas DegreeStats uses cost data from real Kansas graduates, reporting on the typical Resident Tuition, Fees, Room and Board, and Books and Supplies costs for each undergraduate degree program offered at a public university or college in Kansas, the typical length of time to complete each degree program, along with the funding sources contributing to this investment – data on Scholarships and Grants received, Loans, and any Personal Investment made by the individuals who graduated from each degree program. Through partnerships with the Kansas Department of Labor and the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, Wage Information about program graduates is also reported, both upon entry into the Kansas workforce and after five years of employment. Lastly, a user can calculate the Total Loan Debt or Total Degree Investment made and review an Estimated Monthly Payment and % of Expected Annual Earnings the student will spend, based on the Number of Years Repayment selected. At this time, postsecondary certificate programs offered by Kansas public universities and colleges are not listed in Kansas DegreeStats. However, wage outcomes on certificate programs can be located in the Kansas Training Information Program (K-TIP) report, an annual report of the Board of Regents.
