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

At Prairie View A&M, students will enjoy themselves and receive a quality education at the same time. Friends and faculty become family, so even if you are far away from home the homesickness will be kept to a minimum.
Aliyah from Glendale, AZ
This will be my third year at Prairie View. One of the first reasons I chose to attend was because tuition here was not costly. Prairie View does not charge you an arm and a leg and your experience is golden. The knowledge and experience you will have here cannot be put into a simple dollar amount.

Most people think that college puts you in a financial hole, in some situations this is true, however there are so many ways to get what you. Around Prairie View, there are some many people, whether it be Alumni, Administration, Faculty and Staff who are willing to help you, if you are helping yourself. You may get worried, when it seems like your financial aid hasn't came through, but in the end it will all get worked out. They have advisers assigned to you there as always ready to help. Prairie View is definitely worth the time, stress, and money.
