Tuition & Fees


Trinity Southwest University works very hard to keep the cost of tuition and fees as affordable as possible. Tuition is charged by the semester credit hour (SCH). You can realize significant savings by paying for your registration in full. (If you desire a payment program, you’ll need to consult with an Admissions Advisor for terms and conditions). Grants toward tuition may be available for qualifying students. It’s our policy to work with individual students to make TSU degree program tuition affordable. Don’t hesitate to talk to us about your personal needs in this regard.

Tuition Refund Policy

A registration becomes active only when full or initial payment is received and processed. If, after activating a registration by payment of tuition, a student desires to disenroll, the student must formally notify the TSU Dean of Admissions in writing, either electronically or by mail. From that point, the following refund schedule applies for the total amount of tuition on the registration: up to 3 days, 100% is refundable (less a processing fee of $150); after 3 to 30 days, 80% is refundable; after 30 to 45 days, 50% is refundable; after 45 to 60 days, 30% is refundable; after 60 days, 0% is refundable.

The refund schedule is based on the total amount of tuition on the registration, not on the amount paid toward that total via a Payment program.

Active Registration Period

Because TSU degree programs are non-traditional and self-paced, the length of your active registration (the timeframe allotted for the completion of courses on a given registration) is either two years or five years. A two-year active period is granted for all paid registrations that are less than the full degree. A five-year active period is granted for all paid registrations that include the entire degree program.

Payment Options

Your payment options include check (no cash, please), money order, direct bank draft, bank debit card, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).

Minimum Registration Requirement

The minimum registration load for undergraduate and graduate programs is 9 semester credit hours (SCH), or three courses. The minimum registration for a doctoral program is 15 SCH, or one-third of the total program.

Financial Aid

The university is committed to assisting its students in many ways. This may include financial aid.

  • Full payment at the beginning of the program qualifies for a significant tuition discount. Grants or scholarships may be available for qualified students.
  • Unusual circumstances: We will consider these on an individual basis.
