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

3.83 Average Rating
cheap but quality university and great professors.
Cynthia from Beaumont, TX
First off, no amount of money can compare to your overall college experience! Besides, Lamar University is way too affordable for that!
Raven from Beaumont, TX
Classes are not expensive at all compared to other 4 year schools. The professor will help you excel because they aren't doing research the school assigns them or anything that would distance themselves from the students.
Michael from Austin, TX
Compared to other universities in Texas, Lamar University is definitely one of the cheaper ones. With that being said, this is a great school to take advantage of. The education received is priceless.
Krista from Rising Star, TX
I'm so glad I get to spend a relatively small amount of money for great education offered.
Karla from Port Arthur, TX

Shaundrea from Houston, TX

Diamond from Houston, TX
At the end of everything, you will still get your degree for a semi reasonable price. They are raising tuition in fall 2016, so that won't be fun.
Bailey from Lumberton, TX
Financial aid of course pays for education. Some may need loans and that's great. In the end when you have to pay it all back they give you information on how you should go about it.
