Cost of Attendance (COA) figures at UNTHSC include required fixed costs such as tuition, fees, books, and supplies. COA also includes allowances for living expenses such as room, board, transportation, and personal expenses. The COA is determined by the most accurate and up to date information at that time, and some figures can change to increase/decrease the listed amount. The costs have been broken down into the various programs and schools within the university.
These are estimates only. To help determine your budget, you can view this link for Tuition and Fees.
