Tuition and Fees


The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Lamar University. Cost of Attendance is based on the actual enrollment status for each student. Initial COAs and awards are assessed at full-time enrollment. However, COA and award adjustments will be made based on actual enrolled hours. These budgets do not apply to LU Academic Partnership students*
