Costs and Aid

If you’ve done your shopping, you know UHCL is a great value: Our costs are considerably lower than many other public institutions in Texas. While we’re more affordable than most colleges, this is still a big investment. So if you’re curious how to pay for college, start with this: We awarded $50 million in scholarships and grants last year. In all, two out of every three students at UHCL received some kind of aid package. Finances are a critical part of your college decision. Contact us and we’ll be happy to walk you through the things you should consider and the ways you can accomplish your goal.
