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

3.70 Average Rating
West Texas is a great school for everyone. They have a medium size campus that is beautiful and they are always adding to it. If big universities are scary for you, like they are for me, then WT is the place for you. The classes are small and the faculty is nice. Here at West Test you are more than just a number or grade, you are a person. Everyone is nice and there are always fun, free things going on around campus for you to get involved with. Here at WT we have over 100 organizations to get involved with including Greeks! Come take a tour today and DISCOVER THE BUFF IN YOU!

Sabrina from Clovis, NM
Everyone is so friendly and the staff at WTAMU is awesome. They really care and they look after the students.
Big college with a small town atmosphere.
TREVOR from Aztec, NM
At West Texas A&M University, when you pay for your classes and tuition, you don't get a faculty that is there because they have nothing better to do. You get professors that love what they do and genuinely care about their students.
You also pay fees that are actually profitable (for the most part). If you are from home and don't have a doctor, there is a student health center that can figure out what is wrong with you and prescribe medications. Also, there is a gym, library, and computer lab that is included into your fees so you have free access whenever you need it. You don't have to go elsewhere and pay extra for those luxuries.
You also get into any sporting events for free, but that's just a bonus.
You pay very little for so much.
