Tuition and Fees at AIU Houston
At American InterContinental University (AIU) Houston, we strive to make college tuition affordable and accessible for all students, whether you're taking classes at our Houston campus, online or a mix of both. As an AIU student, you have the opportunity to save money by receiving college credit for prior qualifying work, education or military experience*.

Tuition & Graduation Date Calculator
To help you plan for your education, we maintain a convenient AIU tuition and graduation calculator.

Tuition for Online Programs
We also offer a number of online undergraduate and graduate degree programs. For students enrolled in an online associate's or bachelor's program, tuition costs are $325 per credit hour. Tuition for online MBA, MHCM and MSIT degrees is $611 per credit hour, and $442 per credit hour for the M.Ed. program.
While our online programs include course materials through the AIU online learning platform and as e-books, students wishing to use standard printed textbooks are responsible for any additional charges.
Financial Aid Opportunities
In our effort to make higher education affordable for all our students, we offer a range of tuition assistance and financial aid opportunities. Our Financial Aid Advisors can walk you through your FAFSA and federal financial aid options as well as help to identify any grants, scholarships, transfer credits or tuition reimbursement opportunities for which you may qualify.
While AIU Houston offers different need and merit-based grants and scholarship programs, your Advisor can also help point you toward any relevant offerings from the diverse range of scholarships and grants open to Texas residents.
Military Tuition Assistance
As part of our commitment to members of our armed services, AIU Houston offers military tuition assistance in the form of grants and scholarships, tuition reduction and transfer credits for qualifying military experience. Active military undergraduate students in one of our online programs can get up to 45% tuition reduction, with up to 20% tuition reduction available for active military graduate students in an online program (including the U.S. Army Reserves and National Guard).
Additionally, AIU Houston offers four grants specifically for veterans, active-duty service members and their families:
*Transfer credit is evaluated on an individual basis. Not all credits are eligible to transfer. See the University Catalog for transfer credit policies.
Financial aid is available for those who qualify. University grants or scholarships are based on established criteria as published in the University Catalog and are awarded after verification that the conditions of eligibility have been met.
