Estimated Cost of Attendance

The cost of education at Texas Woman's University differs significantly among students. The financial requirements should be studied carefully so that the student knows before enrollment each semester exactly how expenses are going to be paid. By assessing estimated costs and resources, a student can determine well in advance the possible need for financial assistance. The primary responsibility for meeting the cost of higher education lies with the student and his/her family. The primary purpose of student financial aid is to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to attend college.
