Differential Tuition

2016 – 2017 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 2016 – 2017 academic year, the Department of Construction Science received approximately $600,000 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.  The department has a student leadership committee that gives administration recommendations on how differential tuition should be spent to enhance the learning experiences and education of students in our department.  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.
