Cost of Attendance & Tuition

One of the distinguishing features about Texas Law is our affordable tuition and Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA covers fixed expenses (e.g., tuition and fees) and reasonable living expenses only for the nine months students are enrolled for the fall and spring terms. Individual budgets will vary based on student-specific living arrangements, whether they intend to borrow federal student loans, and personal spending decisions.

Students are only able to receive financial aid (i.e., scholarships, grants, and loans) up to the annual COA.

*Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are determined annually each spring and are subject to change. For other tuition rates including rates for dual degree candidates, visit Texas OneStop. The information above should only be used to estimate your cost of attendance.

International students should be aware that they are required to purchase student health insurance and will be assessed a support services fee and an administrative fee.

Cost of Attendance Adjustments

While the annual COA budget is set by the University and has been deemed sufficient to cover reasonable expenses to attend Texas Law, there are circumstances where students may increase the annual budget to include other expenses that may arise and warrant an increase.

Common COA adjustments include:

  • Student health insurance premiums
  • Childcare expenses
  • Costs for professional licensure (e.g., bar exam fees)
  • Equipment (e.g., computer or laptop purchase)

Please note that if you are borrowing federal student loans to cover your expenses, increasing your COA will increase your overall loan indebtedness.
