Board of Regents Approves Guaranteed Tuition Plan

Information from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - The Texas A&M System Board of Regents has approved a guaranteed tuition and fee plan for all Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi undergraduate students starting next fall.

"We've worked hard over the past few months to develop a plan that makes the costs associated with obtaining a degree clearer," said Dr. Flavius Killebrew, President/CEO of A&M-Corpus Christi. "This plan ensures that our students and their parents can project their costs more accurately over four years. It's also a great incentive for our students to finish their degrees on time."

A&M-Corpus Christi undergraduate students will pay the same tuition and fees for up to four years. Currently enrolled students will have a plan guaranteed for one, two or three years based on their classification as sophomores, junior or seniors.

The plan comes in response to a state law enacted by the 83rd Texas Legislature in 2013 requiring institutions to offer a guaranteed tuition and fee plan and a requirement from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents that the plans be mandatory for undergraduate students.

"This shows the commitment of the Board of Regents to keeping a university education affordable," said Killebrew. "It demonstrates their leadership and concern for students."
