Tuition and Fees

Tuition is calculated based on the number of semester credit hours which the student registers. It is determined by the student’s classification as a Texas resident, a non-resident U.S. citizen or a nonresident who is a citizen of another country. Students also are responsible for paying several fees that support college services and programs. The tuition rate varies based upon the residency status of a student.

The tuition rate for resident and non-resident students is listed below.
