Catalog 2012-2013


Place of Residence

NCTC is a “public” institution which draws a major portion of its funding from the State of Texas. Therefore, your tuition rate will be higher if your permanent legal residence* is not in Texas, lower if you’re a resident of Texas (or Oklahoma – see below).

This means your tuition rate will depend upon which of the following three categories you fit into:

  1. In-District : Residents of Cooke County and Graham ISD.
  2. Out-of-District : Residents of all Texas counties except Cooke, and residents of Oklahoma counties contiguous with Cooke who, due to a reciprocal agreement, pay the same tuition rate as Texas residents.
  3. Out-of-State : In addition to residents of states other than Texas, this also includes “international students”– citizens of any country other than the United States.
