Tuition and Financial Aid


The tuition associated with the PharmD program at the Texas A&M Rangel School of Pharmacy is the lowest of any program in Texas, and among the lowest in the nation. However, low tuition does not equate with low program quality – the Rangel School of Pharmacy has continued to grow since opening in 2006 and has opened a second campus, climbed in the U.S. and New World Report rankings, and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

The Texas A&M University Tuition Calculator provides the most up-to-date tuition information for students interested in both the College Station and Kingsville campuses. PharmD students enroll in an average of 18 credit hours per semester.

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Texas A&M University. Your COA covers both your school tuition and basic living expenses. When comparing financial aid packages from other schools, make sure you are comparing the total cost of attending that school, not just the total financial aid awarded.

Return on Investment

Immediately after graduation, pharmacists can earn top salaries. According to data published by the Office of Institutional Research & Effectiveness at the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the median wage reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for pharmacists was $128,570 per year compared to $34,750 per year for all occupations. Consequently, the return on money invested in a pharmacy education is excellent.

Additionally, pharmacy can be a highly rewarding career beyond salary. Pharmacists join one of the most trusted health care professions, directly contributing to the health and well-being of patients and communities.

Financial Aid and Scholarship Support

Despite the low cost associated with our Doctor of Pharmacy program, students do have options in terms of financing their pharmacy school education, including loans, scholarships, grants and other sources.


Because tuition and fees are low, and the communities surrounding the Kingsville and College Station campuses are affordable, students enrolled in the Rangel School of Pharmacy borrow considerably less money when compared to other programs.


Through the generous support of corporate partners and donors, the School of Pharmacy offers multiple scholarships each year to help students enrolled in the PharmD program. Scholarships averaging $1,000 each are offered in the fall and spring semesters.

Students may also find more opportunities for financial support through the Texas A&M Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
