Knowing the cost of attendance can help you budget and better plan the financing of your education. The costs are an average for an academic year (fall and spring) and have been approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Our office takes the cost of attendance into consideration, along with your financial need, when awarding grants, work-study and student and parent loans. The combination of any federal, state and institutional aid cannot exceed the cost of attendance. The official cost of attendance is based on the following expenses:
Given the variety of course loads and number of students at Prairie View A&M University, we use the average tuition and fees costs of 15 credit hours. Actual tuition and fees will vary depending on your course load, type of courses and other factors. To determine your actual tuition and fees charges, visit the Treasury Services web page.
The room and board charges are an estimate and will vary depending on your room and board decisions.
The books and supplies component reflects average costs as determined by a survey of Prairie View A&M University students.
The travel allowance is allocated for the expenses you incur traveling to and from campus. It is not designed to include such expenditures as vehicle maintenance and the purchase of a vehicle.
These expenses include miscellaneous items you will purchase throughout the academic year that are related to your educational costs. Your actual miscellaneous expenses will vary from the budgeted average depending on your spending habits.
