New Tuition and Mandatory Fee Rate Plans for 2017-2018
Texas A&M University-Central Texas implemented The Warrior Guarantee for the first time in the 2014-15 school year, a guaranteed tuition and mandatory fee plan, which allows our students to effectively plan for the cost of their education. At that time, all students enrolled prior to Fall 2015 were automatically enrolled in The Warrior Guarantee until the consecutive semesters outlined in the degree plan ended.
Beginning with Fall 2016, incoming students had the option to enroll in The Warrior Guarantee or to select the Variable Rate Plan. The Variable Rate Plan is effective for one academic year only.
Which plan should you choose?
Incoming students will need to decide which plan best meets their financial needs. The following discussion provides more information about each of the plans to aid in the decision-making process. The specific dollar amounts for all plans can be found at the following link: https://www.tamuct.edu/business-office/tuition-fees.html
The Variable Rate Tuition Plan
Under the Variable Rate Tuition Plan, tuition and fee rates are established for an academic year and are subject to increase or decrease based on economic conditions, Board of Regents action, and/or legislative requirements. This plan is best suited for those students who plan to enroll and graduate within the same academic year.
The Warrior Guarantee
Students opting into The Warrior Guarantee will be assigned to a cohort based on classification for undergraduate students, or program length for graduate students, that guarantees a defined tuition and fee rate that will not change for a specified number of consecutive semesters beginning with their enrollment at A&M-Central Texas. The guaranteed number of consecutive semesters will be as follows for each student classification:
- Students who exceed the specified number of consecutive semesters allowed for degree completion for a specific cohort will be assessed tuition and fees at the approved rate for a similar cohort in the subsequent academic year.
- With the implementation of The Warrior Guarantee, there will be an increase in designated tuition as approved and specified by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents for each of the first four years of the plan. The resulting tuition and fee rate for each student cohort in the first four years of the plan is guaranteed not to change during each guaranteed period of consecutive semesters.
- Students unable to enroll due to special circumstances--such as military deployment or medical emergencies--may request an extension equivalent to the number of semesters missed due to their special circumstance.
All undergraduate students, regardless of residency, are eligible for our flat tuition option, which will cap tuition at 12 semester credit hours (SCH). In other words, if a student chooses to take more than 12 SCH in a semester, the charge for tuition and mandatory fees will equal the charge for 12 SCH. This is our "Bachelor's Bonus," allowing you to take more hours for less!
