Comparing Texas Tech Tuition

The recent tuition increase for Texas Tech isn't the university's first, but it is the biggest, so NewsChannel 11 tracked tuition rates from fall 2001 to fall 2004.

  • In the fall of 2001, students paid $42 per credit hour for both state and Texas Tech tuition charges.
  • The rate either stayed the same or increased slightly for the following semesters.
  • The big jump came in Spring 2004 semester when deregulation went into effect. The state is now charging $46 per credit hour and Tech is charging $56.
  • Next fall, Tech will charge $76 per credit hour and the state will increase its rate to $48.

So, what do these numbers mean to your wallet?

  • A student taking fifteen hours, paid on average $1895.30 in tuition and fees in the fall of 2001.
  • That number increased to $2,672,50 this semester.
  • Next fall, students can expect to pay $3,074, which is a 15% increase in total fees from the current semester
