Differential Tuition

2015 – 2016 Academic Year

Differential tuition for the College of Architecture was approved by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents in May 2011 and went into effect in the fall 2011 semester.  Each student majoring in an undergraduate program in the College of Architecture is charged an additional $204 per semester in addition to the university’s standard tuition.

During the 2015 – 2016 academic year, the Department of Construction Science received $634,275 in differential tuition.   The funds were spent the following ways in the Department of Construction Science:

1)    Summer school and mini mesters

2)    Study Abroad

3)    Competition Teams

4)    Field Trips

5)    Adjunct professors

6)    Classroom and lab furniture, equipment and supplies

The funds generated from differential tuition are allowing our students to enhance their education through various activities.  By offering all required departmental courses in the summer, the time to graduation for students will decrease and were made possible with the funds from differential tuition.
