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. (Note: Some repeat course registration, excess developmental hours and select special courses not eligible for state funding are subject to an additional $50 per hour tuition charge.) 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.

Tuition rates are subject to change by the Collin Board of Trustees, and the above per credit hour tuition for out-of-state/country rates do not include $200 minimum required by law or the $50 per credit cost for courses not eligible for state funding, such as three-time repeat courses, excess hour courses, and special university level math courses. 

Effective fall 2019, Collin's Board approved tuition and fee charges for developmental education non-course competency-based options(NCBO), which are offered on a contact hour rather than a credit hour basis. NCBO course tuition and fees will be assessed using a standard 16 contact hour to one credit hour conversion, residency rates considered, and may result in percentage tuition and fee charges of less than an one-hour equivalency.

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.
