Tuition & Fees

Tuition at North Central Texas College is based on a student's permanent legal place of residence (Texas Education Code 54.008). The three residency classifications are (1) In-District Resident (Cooke County or Graham ISD); (2) In-State*; and (3) Out-of-State Resident (including foreign countries). Students must complete a Residency Questionnaire Form and may also be required to furnish documentary proof (such as a valid Texas Driver's License) to prove resident status.

*In-State rate applies to 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.

Fees charged at registration, in addition to tuition (Education Code 54.051), consist of a General Use Fee of $30.00 per semester hour (Education Code 130.084) and Laboratory Fees (Education Code 54.501) when applicable -see below).
