TCC Board of Trustees Approves Tuition Increase

In an effort to ensure its commitment to being a student-ready College, the Board of Trustees for Tarrant County College has approved a tuition increase effective in spring 2024.

In-county resident tuition will increase by $5 to $69 per credit hour. The out-of-county resident tuition will increase from $126 to $131. Tuition for out-of-state residents and international students will be $310. This is the first tuition increase since the 2018-2019 academic year.

Board members approved the conservative increase in an effort to have minimal impact on the student experience.

“During discussions regarding the tuition increase, the board sought to maintain affordability for all TCC students while continuing to provide a quality education,” said Teresa Ayala, TCC board president.

Tuition for a full-time in-county resident (15 credits) will increase to $1,035, still one of the more affordable tuition rates in Texas.
