Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.84 Average Rating
it is a private school and is on the expensive side, but i think the price would be worth it. they have really good scholarships too.
christina from san antonio, tx
The price tag for ETBU is indeed high, but the admissions office has done everything in their will to make it possible to go. My tuition is so cheap my parents nor I have taken out a loan and we are paying out of pocket. If you are looking into ETBU but the price tag scares you away just know admissions will fight for you to come.
(I didn't mark 5 stars because I am still paying some money).
Lindsey from Mesquite, TX
It is a private school, so it does cost more than public schools. Financial aid is really good at putting together scholarship packages to help you out though.
Nicole
Being a private Christian university, the price tag is fairly large. However, many scholarships are available. The education one receives here, in my opinion, is worth it. With professors who are passionate about Christ, students learn so much more than math and english. Students learns life skills and grow in the Lord. I believe the tuition is a small price to pay for such an education.
Caitlynn from Spring, TX
It is a lot of money! There are ways not to pay,but after your freshman year it gets hard.
Charles from Houston, TX
Personally as a major in Religion East Texas Baptist University provides me with everything I need to succeed in the future. And realistically their tuition prices are great for the quality of education you get here. ETBU also has a great nursing, business, education, and pre-med program and is ranked highly for those programs. I never feel as if I'm wasting my money or time here at ETBU.
Jorge from Princeton, TX
You will get your money's worth when you go to ETBU. Yes it is an expensive school, but the education you receive is well-worth the expense.
You also meet some of your best friends here. This school is so much fun as well. School is what you make of it. If you want to party all the time and waste your opportunities, that is your choice. If you want to learn to balance social life and studying that is also your choice, and you will be a better person for learning balance
