Cost of Attendance

The University of Houston—Downtown has a responsibility to estimate the amount that we believe it may cost to attend the University for an academic year.  The estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) includes average tuition and fees costs, books, room and board, transportation, and personal/miscellaneous expenses.  COA is determined by the housing status that the student indicates on the FAFSA or TASFA application, and actual enrollment. 
Remember that COA is only an estimate, and not the actual bill or cost at UHD.  Actual tuition and fees amounts may be higher or lower based on various factors.  The amount that will be owed to UHD will be the actual costs for tuition and fees.  Other costs are highly individual based on a student’s options and choices.  For more information on what is considered full time enrollment, please see Enrollment Requirements section.​​
