Texas A&M students will pay more to be Aggies, starting this fall.

However, the rate is lower than anticipated earlier this year.

Tuition rates for the Fall 2008 semester have been finalized. Students will pay about 5.3 percent more per semester credit hour than the current rate of $95.70 per semester credit hour.

Students will see an increase of $10.30 per semester credit hour, raising the current tuition rate to $106 per semester credit hour.

Since A&M students are charged for 15 hours, regardless of their course load, that means a flat tuition rate $1,590 starting this fall.

Initial projections had much higher increases forecast.

Interim President Eddie J. Davis in February told students the university could be forced to raise tuition by as much as $27 per semester credit hour.

With the increase less than half that projection, university officials credit funding from the State Legislature and sound budgeting at the university.
