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.

What Students Are Saying

3.02 Average Rating
We get more from education for less. There are great professors you can find at a university for less money. I love that the class sizes are small and the teachers know you on a first name basis.
Christine from Weslaco, TX
very economical school
Lydia from Edinburg, TX
I am happy attending this college and want to continue my education here, but I can use some extra help by receiving a scholarship because I do not receive financial aid help and I have a brother entering college as well.
Salina from Mcallen, TX
The average cost for classes is affordable as well as cost of supplies and textbooks. There are always students willing to help with book purchasing such as reselling books. The cafeteria on campus provides good food at a good costs and the student services available through tuition costs are a big help and definitely worth the price.
Durenda from Mission, TX
