Place of Residence

NCTC is a public institution that draws a portion of its funding from the State of Texas. Therefore, tuition rates will be higher if a student's permanent legal residence is not in Texas.

This means a student's tuition rate will depend upon one of the following three categories:

  • In-District : Residents of Cooke County and Graham ISD.
  • In-State: Residents of all Texas counties except Cooke, and residents of Oklahoma counties contiguous with Cooke who, due to a reciprocal agreement, pay the same tuition rate as Texas residents.
  • Out-of-State : In addition to residents of states other than Texas, this also includes "international students"- citizens of any country other than the United States.
