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

3.31 Average Rating
I would be lying if I didn't mention that this college is fairly expensive. However, the close-knit Christian Community, the great friends, the quality of the education, the fun, the memories, and the history of this University make it worth it. There are a lot of scholarships the university offers to help students lighten the load of paying for school. I cannon stress enough that the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor truly offers Education for Life...Experience of a Lifetime.

UMHB is expensive, but my parents say you get what you pay for. I plan to be a nurse and UMHB has one of the best nursing schools anywhere. I don't want to be a number in an auditorium so for the caliber of instruction and the class size, great value!
Allen from Temple, TX
This university is rather pricey compared to other colleges, but definitely the education you'll receive here is worth it. I'm only a freshman and I've learned more than I have my entire life. Not only that the faculty and staff make themselves available to you. In my first semester, I had the Provost of the University, the Dean of my College of study, the Head of the Math Department, the most respected Psych professor on campus and one of the top History professors in here field as my teachers. I also had countless tutoring and educational programs and aid as my disposal. You also, get small classes so you really know the people you see every day. The library is phenomenal, on a cold or rainy day you can get a coffee and do your homework or read a good book.
Also, the people in the Registrar's office and Bursar's office are really nice and helpful. I've had to be in there every week and everyday I've had to go in there they greet me with a smile and a laugh. They answer any questions I might have, and go out of their way to make the endless amount of paperwork go quickly and smoothly.
When you pay the costs for college at UMHB, you pay for quality and community. The people here have hearts that are as open as your pocket book. :D

UMHB is very great for their tuition. They will help you out and even grant you some scholarships.
Carlos from Houston, TX
Its expensive, being a private school, but there are plenty of scholarships and aid available to assist you.
Nick from Harker Heights, TX
umhb is expensive but compared to other private schools its relatively low. the scholarship office did a great job finding me everything they could and i ended up paying less than i would at a public university. also, the university offers just about everything. they have a gym on campus, a fantastic library, tons of computer rooms and a lot of campus life events that are totally free. also, the level of education i am receiving is worth every penny. i have not encountered a teacher that doesn't care and hasn't been willing to put in their all for me to succeed.
Casey from Temple, TX
The cost per credit hour is definitely no easy task to pay for but the education that you receive is definitely worth it.
Loren from Cedar Park, TX
While the university can be very expensive, there is financial aid available for those who seek it out. They have a wide range of academic scholarships as well as need-based scholarships.
But the cost is worth every penny. You get the highest quality of academic service: free tutors, smaller classes, and professors that go out of their way to ensure that you succeed. You get a huge variety of campus activities all for FREE! The dorm life is amazing as well as the food. And most importantly you are able to make lasting relationships as you come along side your fellow classmates in your journey towards graduation. Don't let money deter you from applying! You will not regret your decision!
Rhema from Fort Worth, TX
When I decided to make UMHB my new home, I thought it was all going to be about studying and going to church. Now that I'm here I can say that I was wrong to assume that because coming here was more than I expected it to be. There's so much to do on campus and in the community. They never run out of things for us students to get involved in.
Ashli from Houston, TX
UMHB is an expensive university, however, they accommodate for this by giving lots of financial aid to incoming students. The university also puts the money to good use by constantly improving the facilities students use on campus, like the new stadium and student union building being constructed that will be completed by the fall of 2013, and the new field house for athletes. The campus always looks beautiful due to a dedicated gardening staff.
