Guaranteed Tuition & Fees

STUDENT FAQ

Effective Fall 2014, state law HB 29 required all public institutions in Texas to offer a guaranteed tuition plan for Undergraduate resident students.

Texas A&M University-Kingsville elected to include both resident and non-resident undergraduate students in the tuition plans. 

New undergraduate students are placed into the new Guaranteed Tuition plan (JPAK) of the current academic year. Transfer students are placed into 1 of 4 active JPAKs based on their earned credit hours that transfer in to the university.

Variable Rate Tuition

Beginning Fall 2016, Texas A&M University-Kingsville will have an option of a guaranteed tuition plan or a 1 year variable tuition & fee rate plan. Unlike the guaranteed rate plan, this variable rate plan is subject to increase on a yearly basis. If a student chooses the variable rate plan, they will no longer be able to go back to the guaranteed rate plan.  For Fall 2016, new students will have until 1st class day to opt for the variable rate.  New Fall 2016 students were enrolled by default in the guaranteed tuition plan.  

Starting with Spring 2017 semester, new students must make the selection at time of registration. For Academic Year 2016-2017 (Fall 2016 thru Summer 2017), the variable rate will be the same rate as the guaranteed tuition & fee rate for 1 year. This rate may increase for the 2017-2018 Academic Year by an amount determined by the Board of Regents.
