The Texas State University System Board of Regents approved a Guaranteed Price Plan for Sam Houston State University and four additional component institutions during the board’s quarterly meeting at Lamar University on Friday, November 8th.
The optional four-year, fixed-rate tuition plan is designed to provide undergraduate students and parents with more predictability when paying for college and to encourage more timely graduation within the four years of fixed tuition. The plan guarantees that the rates for tuition and mandatory fees will not increase for the participating students for 12 consecutive semesters.
Under the plan, the designated tuition rate for SHSU will be $172 per semester credit hour. Students are not required to participate in the fixed-rate program and can continue to pay standard tuition rates if they choose.
