GUARANTEED TUITION PLAN

Guaranteed Tuition Plan

Earning a degree shouldn’t cost more each year.

We offer guaranteed plans that lock in tuition and fee rates. That’s one less thing to think about while you’re planning for college. Our plan locks in tuition costs and mandatory fees for your academic program, from registration to graduation.

On the Guaranteed Tuition Plan, you will be a part of a cohort of students who will pay a certain rate based on residency. That rate is locked in for you when you register. From there, you can begin each year with the immediate understanding that the cost of your degree has not changed. This plan allows you to focus your efforts on completing your program and progressing toward graduation rather than worrying about rising academic costs. With the Guaranteed Tuition Plan, you will save money while receiving the high-quality education that A&M-Commerce has offered for over 125 years.

The Guaranteed Tuition Plan Includes

  • Statutory tuition*
  • Designated tuition
  • Mandatory student fees**

* Statutory tuition rate for non-residents is set by the state of Texas annually and cannot be guaranteed.

Residency Guidelines

Residency Guidelines

Your residency status is based on the information you submitted on your application.

It is the student’s responsibility to accurately answer all questions on the application. New students who believe their residency status is incorrect must contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 903.886.5000.

Current undergraduate students who believe their residency status has changed must report this change to the undergraduate admissions office by completing the Core Residency Questionnaire. Additional documentation may be required to establish Texas residency. The burden of proof is on the student to show they’ve established domicile in Texas for 12 months preceding the student’s enrollment.

36-month Provision

An individual who has resided in Texas for the 36 consecutive months leading up to his or her graduation from a Texas high school or receipt of a GED, and continued to maintain a residence in Texas for the 12 months leading up to his or her enrollment in an institution of higher education, may be classified as a resident for tuition purposes, regardless of dependency or immigration status. Any individual wishing to qualify under this provision who is not a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident of the United States must complete and submit an Affidavit of Intent to Become a Permanent Resident to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in addition to their application for admissions.

Independent Students

Independent students are those who provide more than half of their own financial support and are not eligible to be claimed as a dependent for income tax purposes. In order to qualify for residency for tuition purposes, an independent student must reside AND maintain a domicile in Texas for the twelve months preceding the student’s enrollment.

The following factors, if maintained for twelve consecutive months while residing in Texas, may lend support to a claim of domicile in Texas:

  1. Gainful employment that is sufficient to provide at least one-half of the individual’s expenses or that represents an average of at least twenty hours of employment per week. Employment conditioned on student statuses, such as work study, the receipt of stipends, fellowships or research or teaching assistantships, does not constitute gainful employment.
  2. Ownership of residential real property in Texas.
  3. Ownership and customary management of a business in Texas which is regularly operated without the intention of liquidation for the foreseeable future.
  4. Marriage to a person who has resided and maintained domicile (items 1-3 above) in Texas.

Dependent Students

The residency for tuition purposes of a student who is not independent is based upon that of the parent or court-appointed legal guardian who claims that student as a dependent for federal income tax purposes (or provides more than half that student’s financial support for those not subject to U.S. federal income taxes), regardless of the length of time the student has resided in Texas. If the parent or court-appointed legal guardian of a dependent student meets the criteria of having established residency for tuition purposes, the dependent student is eligible to pay resident tuition. Parents and legal guardians qualify for residency following the same criteria as independent students.

International Students

International Students who are eligible to establish domicile in Texas may also qualify as Texas residents for tuition purposes. Students must submit documentation for themselves and their parent if they are a dependent. Students with special circumstances related to their claim of residency may submit additional documentation for consideration. Students with F-1 Visas do not qualify.

Residency Reclassification

A student classified as a non-resident at the time of admission retains that classification until he or she requests reclassification and provides proof of residence to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The student must complete a Core Residency Questionnaire form and provide documentation to support the claim to reclassification as mentioned in the Independent Students section above.

Deadlines

Students who wish to apply for eligibility to pay resident tuition must do so by the 12th class day of the fall or spring semester or the fourth class day of the summer semester in which they wish to pay resident tuition. Any applications received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions after this time will be considered for the next term.

Residency Directions

Military Personnel and Their Dependents

A member of the United States Armed Services who claims Texas as the Home of Record with the military is presumed to be a Texas resident, along with his or her spouse and dependent children. A member whose Home of Record is not Texas but who provides the institution Leave and Earnings Statements that show the member has claimed Texas as his or her place of residence for the 12 consecutive months prior to enrollment is presumed to be a Texas resident, along with his or her spouse and dependent children.

Military spouses and dependents who do not meet any of the above criteria for establishing residency for tuition purposes may still be eligible to pay the resident tuition rate. Please contact the Veterans & Military Service Office at 903.886.5123 or [email protected] for assistance.

  • Distance Learning Fee: A distance learning fee of $50 per credit hour is assessed in addition to regular tuition and mandatory student fees for courses delivered via the Internet or by two-way interactive video at the receiving site. Students enrolled in two-way interactive video courses at the sending site will not be assessed the distance learning fee.
  • Program Delivery Fee: Students taking courses at any location other than the main Commerce campus will be assessed a program delivery fee of $20 per credit hour.

Courses taught at Corsicana and Midlothian locations will be assessed a program delivery fee of $10 per credit hour.
  • Property Deposit: A $10 general property deposit is required to remain on deposit for each student during his or her enrollment at the university. This deposit is to ensure the institution against losses, damages and breakage in libraries and laboratories. If the $10 deposit is refunded or any claim for damages is filed against the deposit, a student will again be assessed the property deposit fee. If not claimed within four years after the last date of enrollment, the deposit is non-refundable. To receive a refund of your property deposit, a written request must be submitted to Student Accounts, Financial Services office after your withdrawal or graduation.
