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

3.86 Average Rating
Yes. Texas Tech has been most helpful in providing financial aid and scholarships. A little effort is required on the part of the student but it is worth it in the end. If you are having issues with obtaining financial aid, apply for school scholarships. Another option to look into is to attend summer courses at your local community college. It saves money, you get the same credit (make sure they transfer), and you do something useful with your summer. Do not be afraid to take out loans. They will pay themselves off when you have a strong career. Besides, a loan is an investment in your education and future and there is nothing better to invest in.
Marie from El Paso, TX
If your not to hot about recieving enough scholarships like i am struggling with, loans are the way to go. Tech is worth its money.
Olivia from San Marcos, TX
Is there any college that really has bang for the buck? I don't think so, but Tech is in a city that is less expensive than most.
Joshua from Tahoka, TX
It's an expensive school don't get me wrong, but you're paying for what you get and more. I wouldn't choose another school to attend even if it was cheaper. To be completely honest, its fun packed, traditions are crazy, and not to mention the education you gain is top. You're paying a lot less here to get the same or better education then you'd get at a private school.
Red Raider from Fort Worth, TX
College isn't cheap but with Texas Tech you are getting a great education. No matter the price I will finish school at Texas Tech. I am a Red Raider for life!
Hannah from Wolfforth, TX
i've had the most amazing time of my life so far at texas tech. the food, dorms, and academics are outstanding for the price that you pay for them, but the experience that you get out of going to school here is what's priceless. you meet so many amazing people, and every day feels like an adventure. i've never been so proud to call a school my own.
Elizabeth from San Antonio, TX
I feel that I am getting the bang for my buck. For my tuition I get to attend every home game of any sport for free, I get as big of a meal plan as I want, and I get to learn from some of the best professors in the nation.
