Tuition and Student Fees

Beginning with the Fall 2016 semester, the University will provide a tuition/fee plan - known as the [in]Tuition Plan and a 1 year optional rate plan.  Students are assigned automatically to InTuition plan upon enrollment but will have a one-time option to choose the 1 year optional plan instead.  Students opting for the 1 year rate plan will remain in that plan until graduating.

Additional information (including answers for frequently asked questions) for the [in]Tuition Plans can be accessed by clicking on the following link tamuc.edu/intuition.

Distance Learning Fee

Texas A&M University-Commerce provides instruction in both on-campus and off-campus settings. Delivery of off-campus instruction via the Internet or two-way interactive video (televised instruction) involves special delivery costs. Accordingly, a distance learning fee is assessed to all web-based classes and to interactive video classes where the section is a video receiving site.

A distance learning fee of $50 per semester credit hour (SCH) is assessed in addition to regular tuition and mandatory student fees for courses delivered via the Internet or by two-way interactive video at an off-campus receiving site. Students enrolled in two-way interactive video courses at the Commerce campus will not be assessed the distance learning fee.

Program Delivery Fee

Students taking courses at any location other than the main Commerce campus will be assessed a program delivery fee of $20 per semester credit hour. This fee applies only to lecture courses where the instructor is present. Web-based courses or course sections taught by interactive video at the receiving site will not be assessed a program delivery fee.  Courses taught at Corsicana and Midlothian locations will be assessed a program delivery fee of $10 per credit hour.

Miscellaneous Fees

Property Deposit

A $10 general property deposit is required to remain on deposit for each student during his or her enrollment at the university. This deposit is to insure the institution against losses, damages, and breakage in libraries and laboratories. If the $10 deposit is refunded or any claim for damages is filed against the deposit, a student will again be assessed the property deposit fee. If not claimed within four years after last date of enrollment, the deposit is non-refundable.
