    It's average, I don't think it's too high or too low. I would say about $250 per credit hour with fees.

    I highly recommend everyone to attend the University of Texas-Pan American. I am very happy in my decision to attend there and I know if you enroll you will be too. This is currently my second year attending and I never want to leave. I am very blessed to be attending this University and can't wait for what is in store for me and the University. There are no partying or drinking on campus that I have seen which I really enjoy because that is not fun to me.

    If there is one quality that the University of Texas-Pan American should be hailed for, it should be the following: affordability. This university gives you a quality education for a rather unorthodox price. With this being said, a student of meager income can be assured a wonderful education without having to be worried about being in debt fresh out of college. Also, the university offers incredible opportunities in the form of university funded scholarships for deserving students. Overall, being a student at this university is a win-win situation in many aspects.
