The estimated cost to attend Texas A&M for 2020-2021 is approximately $31,428 for in-state residents, which includes tuition and fees, housing & meals, books, transportation and miscellaneous expenses.

Texas A&M offers over $871 million in financial assistance each year, which means many students’ out-of-pocket costs are much lower than the published cost of attendance. In fact, last year on average, which means a student with a family income under $40,000, had an out-of-pocket cost of about $9,872, and a student with a family income between $40,000 and $80,000 had an out-of-pocket cost of about $12,285.

Applying for financial assistance may provide the additional resources necessary to cover out-of-pocket costs.
