Annual Flat-Rate Tuition for Texas undergraduate students

Designed to serve as an incentive to help our students graduate in a timely manner with as little debt as possible, any Texas undergraduate student enrolled in 12+ hours will be charged a flat rate tuition of $5,300 per semester.

Guaranteed-Price Plan

Instead of the annual flat-rate tuition, some students choose to participate in the guaranteed-price plan, which provides a locked-in rate for mandatory tuition and fees for up to four years. For eligible students, all rates for 12+ hours are set at $5,675.
