Tuition & Fees

Guaranteed Tuition Rate

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 Tuition Rate

Beginning Fall 2016, new undergraduate students can choose to enter a 1 year variable tuition rate plan rather than the guaranteed tuition plan. Unlike the guaranteed rate plan, this variable rate plan will adjust every year based on the Higher Education Price Index.

Students will be able to change their tuition rate plan during their first semester enrollment and can only make the switch once during their academic career at TAMUK. To change the tuition plan at a later time, students should submit an appeal by following the "Appeal Form" link in the right navigation menu.
