TEXAS EDUCATION WEBSITE SAYS BLINN STUDENTS WILL SAVE THOUSANDS IN 2017-18

  

According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s CollegeForAllTexans.com, Blinn College students will save thousands of dollars once again during the 2017-18 academic year.

At $5,158 for 30 credit hours, Blinn’s out-of-district tuition and fees offer students a savings of $3,717, approximately 42 percent, compared to state residents at the average Texas public university. The average tuition and fees for Texas residents at a public university is $8,875.

Students who choose to attend Blinn instead of one of the state’s 37 private universities save almost $25,000 over the course of the year. With the average Texas private university costing $28,573, out-of-district Blinn students taking 30 credit hours save $24,856, or 86.9 percent.

In addition to Blinn’s low tuition and fees, the Blinn Foundation offers more than 200 endowed scholarships available to incoming and returning students from a wide range of backgrounds, majors, and experiences. Blinn students and prospective students also can register for external scholarships and participate in grant programs.

Blinn’s academic transfer rate regularly ranks among the highest in the state and the nation. According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Blinn’s academic transfer rate of 34.2 percent ranks second in the state and far exceeds the statewide average of 21.1 percent.

In addition to transfer agreements with the state’s leading four-year universities, Blinn is home to pioneering co-enrollment programs such as the Texas A&M-Blinn TEAM (Transfer Enrollment at A&M) Program and the Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Blinn.

In Fall 2018, Blinn will open a new location at The Texas A&M University System’s RELLIS Campus, creating a new educational community combining a major university system and a community college at a single physical location. This co-location will allow Blinn students to transfer seamlessly to leading universities throughout The Texas A&M System in the years to come. The site also creates opportunities for Blinn to partner with other organizations and institutions located on the RELLIS Campus, including high-end, innovative, private research and development companies, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX).

Registration currently is available for Blinn’s Summer and Fall semesters. For enrollment or financial aid information, visit www.blinn.edu.
