Tuition and Fee Schedule

The University of Houston restructured tuition and fees to a fixed rate per semester credit hour beginning fall 2012, as have other universities in the state.  The Board of Regents endorsed and approved the revised schedule.  In the past the Law Center charges were a combination of tuition per semester credit hour and fees that remained constant regardless of the hours taken.  Under the new schedule, those taking fewer hours and using fewer services will be paying less than in the past; those Texas residents enrolled in 11 or more hours will see an increase in costs.  Overall, however, the total cost of your law school degree should be the same.
