Low Tuition, No Fees

Our simplified tuition model streamlines rates and eliminates extra registration fees. That's right! No fees. This means….

  • No lab fees
  • No general service fees
  • No distance learning fees
  • No technology fees
  • No course fees
  • No incidental fees

Because the tuition plan is easy to understand, you can calculate your enrollment costs without worrying about surprise added costs. An affordable, high-quality education is within your reach!

 

Tuition Rate

We’re creating equitable access to our programs by ensuring all students (based on residency) pay the same price per semester credit hour.

Tuition rate* per semester credit hour, effective fall 2019:

In-District Texas Resident $78
Out-of-District Texas Resident $135
Non-Texas Resident/International $210
Fees $0

 

Learn more about residency.

*Note: Tuition rate is the same whether auditing courses or taking for credit. Rate is subject to change by Texas State Legislature and the San Jacinto College District Board of Trustees.

 

Other Expenses

We’re excited to simplify tuition, but you still have some non-registration costs.

You’re responsible for buying textbooks, workbooks, and supplies (notebooks, pens, etc.) and covering any special requirements for courses or programs -- like uniforms, software, drug tests, and more. Want to save money? Consider renting textbooks and selling new and used books and course materials at the College bookstore.

Here are some other non-registration charges you may have:

  • Installment payment plan (IPP), including charges for set-up and late payments
  • Charge for returned checks
  • Testing charge for repeat Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) tests, after the first free test
  • Charge for delinquent accounts sent to collection agencies

Also, complete any class changes before the first day of class. If you drop classes during the scheduled class change period, they will be assessed at 30 percent of the tuition, according to Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board guidelines, even if you’re replacing with other courses. The dropped class may also show up on your transcript as “withdrawn."
