Map of Texas and surounding states

For students from any of the other 49 states it means a tuition rate of $7,629 per year—a lot less than the average tuition price for students attending a public university in their own state! Get a cost breakdown with our Tutition Estimator!

For years we've offered this great rate to students from Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Beginning in Fall 2012 it won't matter what state you come from, this lower tuition rate applies to you.

Hundreds of students come to West Texas A&M from across the nation. Why? Because we have academic programs they're interested in and offer a great college experience.

And word is spreading: We've been recognized as one of U.S. News and World Report's  "America's Best Colleges" for 2011 and 2012 (ranked #24 in "Top Public Regional Schools" in the West) and a "Best in the West" university by Princeton Review for 2011, 2012, and 2013.

So what does this low tuition rate mean for out-of-state students in real dollars?

For incoming freshmen here's a comparison in annual tuition rates according to The College Board's "Annual Survey of Colleges":

$7,629 – Tuition for U.S. students attending West Texas A&M University
$8,244 – Average tuition for students attending a public university in their home state
$20,700 – Average tuition for students attending a public university outside their home state
$28,500 – Average tuition for students attending a private university anywhere

There's no special application or criteria for this tuition rate. If you are a U.S. resident coming from any of the 49 states outside of Texas you'll receive it. So what are you waiting for? Apply now using the button on the right side of this page and we'll help you Discover the BUFF in You!
