Tuition & Fees

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is the most affordable university in Louisiana, according to the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency List.

  • How many credit hours you're taking that semester; and
  • Whether you're an in-state, out-of-state, or international student.
