A TCU education is an investment in your future

As you consider schools, also consider the quality of the investment you're making. If you choose the right college, the return in personal fulfillment and professional achievement can be great.   

TCU's tuition is several thousand dollars lower than most institutions of comparable quality and selectivity, and the value of a TCU education is growing. New and renovated facilities house cutting-edge academic programs and exciting ways to get involved.

Amid these changes, the hallmarks of a TCU education remain: the strengths and choices of a major university, the personal attention of a small college, opportunities for leadership and real-world experience.

Consider the value and advantages of TCU, and you may find that joining the Horned Frog family is the best investment of your life.
