    University of Kansas DOES have your major...biomedical engineering.

    https://bio.engr.ku.edu

    Total cost of attendance is about $27,000 a year.

    You have $10,000 you can "pay" plus $5500 Direct Loan you can get also. So that's $15,500.

    Does Kansas have merit awards for instate students?

    And for,the record...even IF you are part of a tuition common market or exchange...with other states..your costs of attendance are NOT going to be less.

    My son finished his freshman yr at UA. We are also from Kansas. The Pres scholarship pays for your tuition and there is another 2500 a yr for engineering. I think the cutoff might be a 32 for full tuition but you can look up on UA scholarship site. UAH in Hunstville also has a very generous scholarship offers as does Utah St ( but it's mostly mormon society which could be a shock). Not sure about Ole MIss on both of those majors but they have very, very generous scholarhip offers too.

    will your parents pay the $15k per year? If not who will?

    What is your career goal with BioMedE? That is a very limiting major and NOT necessary for any career path. ChemE or MechE will accomplish the same goals and will be offered at a LOT more schools.

    I hate to see kids who have financial limitations thinking that they must go to a school with biomedE since it's not necessary.

    <<<,
    My parents could contribute slightly from savings.

    How much will they pay? Who will pay the $15k per year??

    You need to identify at least 3 schools that will not only accept you BUT you also know FOR SURE that you have ALL costs covered with ASSURED merit, grants and/or family funds.

    UA presidential scholarship no longer covers full tuition, and not sure about extra engineering scholarship.

    I believe a 1490 SAT is needed now, not sure on required ACT score.

    University of Kansas does have it but it's only Master's or above program
  • thumper1thumper1 Registered User Posts: 61,893 Senior Member
    Then get a bachelors in mechanical engineering...and go for a masters in bio engineering.

    What is your career goal?

    $15,000 means full tuition then.

    Check if Arkansas still has reciprocity for KS. Pretty sure they have BME.

    University of Pittsburgh is another excellent place for biomedical engineering, especially given the proximity of UPMC to the main campus. They also award full-tuition merit scholarships, though unlike Alabama, they are not automatic. Nonetheless, it's worth considering.

    The $15,000 would be from savings
