A Guaranteed Price Plan

Lamar University offers the LU Tuition Lock, a guaranteed price plan, to eligible students effective for four full years.

LU Online Accelerated Program students are not eligible for the Tuition Lock Program.

The LU Tuition Lock is a set price that accounts for anticipated increases in tuition and mandatory fees for four full years, providing the student remains an undergraduate resident of Texas.  

There will be no tuition or mandatory fee rate increases for the duration of the plan.  Only first-time, degree seeking freshmen, transfer students, and Texas residents are eligible for the plan.

Apply for LU Tuition Lock

If a student decides not to apply, no action is necessary. The student will be charged the traditional price plan in effect at that time.

Texas Residency
