Paying for College

Tuition

At South Texas College we’ve built a reputation for low tuition rates while prioritizing our quality of instruction. Because the only thing on your mind should be your success, not how much it’ll cost.

Financial Aid

One of the first steps to take to ensure your college expenses are covered is to submit a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).  Our Student Financial Services Department can help guide you through the whole process. Just remember your eligibility is dependent on: 

  • Completing your FAFSA
  • Create an FSA ID account
  • Completing the FAFSA process early enough to ensure payment of courses

  School Code: 031034

TASFA

As specified by Senate Bill 1528, state law permits students that are neither US citizens nor permanent residents to be classified as Texas residents for admissions and financial aid purposes, thus making them eligible for state aid.
