Tuition & Fees

The University is committed to providing quality education at a reasonable cost. Each student benefits from funding provided by the Baptist General Convention of Texas and through donor generosity, which enables the University to charge considerably less than the actual cost of providing services to its students.

Tuition and fees are payable in advance at registration. Students will not be officially registered or admitted to class until they have received financial clearance by the Business Office.

Due to continually increasing operating costs, Baptist University of the Americas reserves the right to change tuition, fees, deposits, and room and board rates without notice to prospective students.
