Tuition Rates

Annual Flat-Rate Tuition

Any Texas undergraduate student enrolled in 12 hours or more will be charged a flat rate tuition of $5,300 per long semester for the 2020-21 academic year. Also, we’ve eliminated course and lab fees, and rolled a flat $100 semester charge for all undergraduates into the tuition rate. Our flat-rate tuition is designed to serve as an incentive to help our students graduate in a timely manner with as little debt as possible. This price is set for one fiscal year.

Guaranteed-Price Plan

Instead of the annual flat-rate tuition, some students choose to participate in the guaranteed-price plan, which provides a locked-in rate for mandatory tuition and fees for up to four years. For eligible students in 2020-21, all rates for 12+ hours are set at $5,675.

Question 2: Are you a transfer student?

  • Yes – If you are transferring to SFA as an undergraduate resident of Texas who attended another college previously, you may choose the annual flat rate tuition.
