Guaranteed Price Plan Option
In addition to the traditional price plan, a Guaranteed Tuition Price Plan (GPP) is available to Undergraduate incoming freshman or transfer students. (See comparisons above). Only Texas residents entering SHSU for the first time are eligible to select the GPP as a price plan option. The GPP is a fixed cost tuition payment program that is valid for 12 consecutive terms including Summer terms. Before making this selection, we encourage you to review the FAQ information document as the GPP may not benefit certain students.
Example: A student whose first term of enrollment was Fall 2017 would have a Summer 2021 term GPP expiration date.
The GPP is only available for enrollment the first term of attendance at the university if all other requirements are met. Deadlines apply to the GPP. Please note that refunds are not provided. See Guaranteed Price Plan (GPP) Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
If you are qualified to select a Guaranteed Price Plan, you may make your selection through MySam. Go to http://mysam.shsu.edu, select Campus Resources tab, then Banner Self Service> Student> Guaranteed Price Plan.
