Traditional Tuition Plan

Know your college costs now

The traditional tuition plan lets you know your tuition costs for four years so you can plan ahead.

  • With the traditional plan, you will pay a 3.9 percent tuition increase from the 2015-16 tuition rate and then a 3.9 percent increase each year for the next three years.

  • The traditional plan does not offer the incentive of up to $3,000 for graduating on time but you may still be eligible for the statewide on-time $1,000 tuition rebate.

If you do not meet the Texas residency requirements, you will be automatically enrolled in the traditional plan.
