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.

You are paying way less for the same basic courses that other students are taking at 4-year universities.
Ann from Dallas, Tx
alot cheaper. i didn't pay as much as i would have going to a university. And as an undergrad student, it's best if you REALLY do your best not to have debts and loans.
Mary from Arlington, TX
Tarrant County College provides several raffles for students to get a chance to win some kind of surprise; it could be gift cards of restaurants to online shopping or a chance to learn winnings for the bookstore.
Geraldo from Fort Worth, TX
Tarrant County College is very cheap. This is a great school for anyone who is on a budget and also looking for a good quality education. Also I recommend this school for almost everyone because you can transfer almost all your credits to any university.
