Best Value College

Texas Tech Named Best Value College

Texas Tech University recently was listed in Kiplinger Personal Finance's "25 Best College Values Under $30,000/Year," as part of the magazine's annual Best Values in Public Colleges feature.

Texas Tech came in at No. 20, and is the only Texas school on the list. Tuition and mandatory fees for Texas Tech undergraduate resident students are $7,517 for 24 credit hours.

"Texas Tech has one of the lowest in-state and out-of-state tuitions in the country, making it a great value nationally," said M. Duane Nellis, president of Texas Tech. "We have an outstanding, talented faculty that is dedicated to our mission of producing the very best graduates, who leave here and make significant contributions to our society."

Following the May 2013 Board of Regents meeting, the university announced it would maintain tuition and mandatory fees from the 2012-2013 school year, a move designed to encourage student enrollment and retention.
