Fixed Tuition Rate Plan


The University of Houston Downtown is excited to offer first-time-in-college freshmen and transfer students with less than 30 hours of transferable college credit the new Fixed Tuition Rate Program. 


What is a Fixed Tuition Rate?

The fixed tuition rate is a guaranteed tuition rate per credit hour for all mandatory tuition and fees associated with enrollment. The fixed tuition rate does not cover any other charges associated with attendance at the University such as, but not limited to: College differential tuition rates, textbooks, supplies, fines, transcript fee, late registration fee, examination/testing fee, new student orientation fee, ID card fee, parking permits, and other voluntary fees. The Fixed Tuition Rate Plan will be set for a maximum of up to twelve (12) consecutive semesters that occur after the date of the student’s initial enrollment. The plan applies to Board Designated Tuition only. Other assessed designated tuition and fees are not included in the Fixed Tuition Rate Plan and are subject to change at any time.

Benefits of Fixed Tuition Plan:

The goal of the program is to help students and families better plan for college costs and support timely graduation in four years. Signing a contract for the Fixed Tuition Rate Program allows students and families to accurately prepare their educational budget. Students are able to maintain the same tuition rate per credit hour for four years and eliminate uncertainty about future tuition increases. In fact, students who maintain eligibility and choose to remain in the Fixed Tuition Rate Program for the full four year period could see up to approximately $500 in total savings. In addition, the program requirement of completing 30 hours each academic year ensures that participants will graduate in 4 years, saving the expense and lost salary of extra college semesters.

Eligibility Requirements:


  • Fall 2014 incoming, first-time-in-college student or
  • Fall 2014 incoming transfer student with 30 or less transferable credit hours enrolling in the Fall 2014 semester.
  • Students must also enroll as a full-time student their first semester of attendance.
