Tuition and Fees Increase by Discipline at TTUHSC

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

TTUHSC officials announced that institutional tuition will increase depending on health care discipline beginning the 2014 fall semester. The revenue generated from this increase will be used for need-based student financial aid, to recruit and retain qualified faculty and staff, and for general operating expenses.

“We are proud of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center’s record of providing excellent training for future health care professionals for Texas and the rest of the country,” said President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. “Even with this increase, tuition rates at TTUHSC remain competitive with other nursing, medical, allied health sciences, biomedical sciences and pharmacy programs throughout the state.”

Tuition will increase from $125 per semester credit hour to $130 per semester credit hour for students enrolled in the School of Allied Health Sciences, the TTUHSC School of Nursing, and the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing, an increase from $80 per semester credit hour to $85 per semester credit hour for students enrolled in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, an increase from $175 per semester credit hour to $185 per semester credit hour for students enrolled in the School of Pharmacy, and from $7,500 annual rate to $8,000 annual rate for students enrolled in the TTUHSC School of Medicine and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.

The Finance and Administration Committee of the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents also voted to establish an academic department instructional assessment fee to be assessed at a flat rate per student not to exceed $300 per academic term. The amount of the fee is to be determined by each academic program. It is further recommended that course fees, currently assessed at a rate of $3 to $45 per course, be eliminated.

It is estimated TTUHSC allied health sciences, pharmacy and biomedical sciences tuition and fees for the 2014-15 academic year will rank second-lowest out of six peer institutions in Texas, including the University of Texas and Texas AM University. TTUHSC ranks third- and fourth-lowest for medical education tuition and fees; and third-and fifth-lowest for nursing education costs.
