The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend the University of Texas Pan-American. The cost of attendance (COA) doesn’t just cover the college tuition; it takes into account basic living expenses too. Keep in mind that the cost of living expenses apply whether a student is in college or not.
Cost of attendance budgets include the following components:
Tuition & Fees – The average cost of tuition and fees for a typical undergraduate student based on enrolling for 12 hours per semester for the fall and spring semester; or the average cost of tuition and fees for a typical graduate student based on enrolling for 9 hours per semester for the fall and spring semester. The actual costs that a student incurs will vary depending on the student’s degree program and whether there are additional fees.
Books & Supplies – The average cost of books and supplies for a typical full time student for an entire academic year.
Room & Board – A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live in the Rio Grande Valley while attending school. For students living on campus, it is based on average residence hall rates and the largest meal plan available. Actual costs may vary by individual choices related to location and circumstances.
Transportation – The transportation allowance includes the cost of travel between the student’s residence and the institution, and travel necessary to complete a course of study. Costs may vary because of the student’s place of permanent residence, or the student’s place of residence while in school.
Miscellaneous personal expenses - The allowance for miscellaneous personal expenses includes clothing, laundry and cleaning, personal hygiene and grooming supplies.
NOTE: Adjustments to Cost of Attendance may be considered, when appropriate, for one time purchase of a computer, dependent care expenses, costs for study abroad, and costs related to a disability.
