Neeley School of Business students will have to pay an extra $250 per credit hour next fall to accommodate the school’s growth.

The differential tuition funds are going toward academic and professional advisors, career center support, experiential learning opportunities and new technology to enhance future employment opportunities, according to the Neeley website.

Pre-business students will no longer need to formally apply to Neeley after completing their first-year requirements. They will automatically advance into the major when they complete certain coursework.

There are currently 783 students enrolled, 2,640 students accepted and 6,140 students who have applied to the business school. (https://ir.tcu.edu/facts-data/) Neeley’s Interim Dean and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs Hettie Richardson, Ph.D., said she expects even more from the school’s momentum.

“The TCU Neeley experience and student outcomes have never been stronger,” Richardson said. There is a growing demand for students wanting a Neeley education along with the TCU experience that is felt among all students who attend.

Year over year we continue to see an increase of students in TCU Neeley. As the largest school or college by majors in TCU, we recognize the value of collaborating across campus which also leads to more interest in our programs and offerings,” said Richardson.

Those in Neeley believe that as the price increases, so does the value of the degree. 98% of TCU undergraduate students are employed or enrolled in graduate school with an average salary starting at $71,000. Neeley continues to be ranked highly and is named among the top 25 undergraduate business schools and No. 1 in Texas by Poets&Quants, Richardson said.

The differential tuition is designed to allow students to have access to the most modern business resources available and to compete and surpass competitor institutions, Richardson said.
