Cost of Attendance

Knowing the cost of attendance can help you budget and better plan the financing of your education. The costs are an average for an academic year (fall and spring) and have been approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Our office takes the cost of attendance into consideration, along with your financial need, when awarding grants, work-study and federal student and parent loans. The combination of any federal, state and institutional aid cannot exceed the cost of attendance. The official cost of attendance is based on the following cost of attendance components.
