Tuition and Fees

Collin College is committed to providing students with high quality, affordable educational opportunities.  Financial aid, scholarships, and payment plans may also be available to make paying for college affordable.

Undergraduate (Credit) course tuition assessment is based on residency and the number of enrolled credit hours. The charts below provide the course tuition and fee rates by residency classification.  If the charges on your student account are higher than you expect based on your county of residence and enrollment hours, verify your residency classification status with the Office of Student and Enrollment Services.

Students are responsible for maintaining their course registration status for a term, meeting all payment deadline requirements, and complying with Collin's Student Financial Responsibility agreement.

Cost of Attendance is an estimate, based on a standard defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, of the expenses incurred by a typical first year student in attending a particular college. It includes tuition, fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and other personal expenses. The Cost of Attendance chart is useful for students in determining their institution preference for meeting their higher education goals; for students and their families in developing their educational budgets; and for Financial Aid advisors in determining aid eligibility and award amounts for student applicants.
