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.

Top notch school and where else can you get the one on one attention that is available at TLU. Scholarships are amazing and the staff is so helpful in assisting you with obtaining the most possible scholarships available for you.
Kaitlin from San Antonio, TX
Thank GOD for financial aid!!
Lucas from George West, TX
for almost 30k you paying for smaller classes and one on one interactions with your professors. tlu may not have luxuries like sleeping rooms and multiple dining halls like ut, a&m and texas state, but we do have an olympic size swimming pool, fitness center, starbucks, and class rooms that are open 24 hours for your use at any time of the day.

You'll certainly get your money's worth, in terms of being prepared by the time you're done.
Though a bit on the expensive side, the activities and education you get at TLU, along with the sense of community, really makes this a worthwhile college.
Zachary from Seguin, TX
Not sure what bang for the buck means? But I'm thinking that it has to do with money? Not sure, but I'm just gonna go with that. TLU is pretty expensive, but its worth every penny! They offer scholarships which help out alot! Thats what's keeping me there so far. But thats why we have generous websites like Fastweb and Cappex to help us explore our options to make our college education possible! :)
Cassandra from Pleasanton, TX
Being a private school, TLU is expensive. However, I truly feel that the cost is worth it 110%. The experience I have had here is above and beyond what I dreamed as my perfect college experience. There is so much to learn beyond the classroom; it is a holistic education that you can't get many other places.
Emily from San Antonio, TX
While TLU is more expensive than most schools, it offers various scholarships based on school standing and financial need. Do not let the price tag fool you because this school does what it can to help you pay for it and the price is worth the education and experience.
