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.

It's expensive. It's a private school. BUT the kind of education you recieve is definitely worth the price. You come out well-rounded and prepared. I truly feel that my life has been enriched with all the philosophy and theology courses that I took.
Karen, Houston, TX
Yes it's expensive but worth it and it won't be out of your pocket if you just look for scholarships. Most of us are on scholarships.
Bianca from Humble, TX
It may be expensive, but the University is willing to help out their students pay for their education in any way it can. The education you will receive is worth the buck.

The university goes out of its way to have the world visit the students in the forms of conventions, sessions, presentations over subjects covering important issues currently in discussion and evolution in the world. The topics covered by international leaders are the topics touched on and brought up to for the students to be engaged in.Innovations for the campus and new programs for student benefit are very frequent and students hold weight on these decisions. For example, the soon to be new arts devoted building which will not only be available for the use of the university but will be an asset to Houston as well. Year round the school facilities are available for the students to use just by simply reserving ahead of time; the school hires professionals to give an assortment of body fitness classes such as: yoga, at-your-desk yoga to take with you in any situation, dancing, weightlifting, cardio-focus, and so on without any additional fee to the student that are available year round and some even in the summer.
Juliette from Houston, TX
The school is pricey, but the school offers many scholarship opportunities and payment methods. They don't want students to not attend because of financial purposes,so they will find scholarships and loans for you to stay enrolled in the school.
Simberly from Houston, TX
This college is cheaper than some of the other private colleges in the area and they are able to offer scholarships depending on each individuals needs.
Laundry service is free to the students at St. Thomas, unlike some other colleges where the students have to pay.
The parking garage has several spaces for parking and the fee for parking is reasonable compared to other colleges.

It's a private school, so it's definitely expensive. However, I feel like I am definitely getting my money's worth in education and atmosphere.
