When you find out that you’ve been accepted to Angelo State University, located in Texas, you should learn as much as you can about your new home for the next four years. You may already live in Texas, in which case you may already be used to the heat and drought. However, this area is sometimes closer to sub-tropical, so be prepared for more humidity.
Overview of Angelo State University
San Angelo is a midsize city in an area surrounded by other small towns. You’ll still find activities, restaurants, and shopping for those times when you aren’t studying. The campus itself is spacious and you might want to make sure you have a car to get around, or at least be prepared to help out your unwitting chauffeurs with some gas money.
You’ll be able to live in the dorms on-campus, meaning you can save your hard-earned money for books, other necessities, and a few fun things. As you start your classes, you should know the student-faculty ratio is 20 to 1. This may make it more difficult to get a few minutes with a professor when class ends, so you might want to consider reaching out for office time or sending an email if you struggle as you get into learning.

Angelo Tuition Cost & Financial Aid
When you and your parents discuss the cost of your education at Angelo State, you may hear the total price mentioned a few times. While you usually look at the tuition of a school, when you plan to attend you must consider the total price, which includes the cost of in- or out-of-state tuition, room and board, books, lab fees, supplies, and other various charges such as a cafeteria plan or parking permit for campus. Added up, the entire amount that you’ll be charged is $27,097 on average. However, you may not have to pay the entire amount if you are eligible for financial aid. The cost of attendance in a recent school year, after financial aid was applied, was $12,169. This cost after financial aid is the average net price. That’s quite a difference.
Families are all charged the same amount by the university, but their net price will differ by income because that is how people are determined eligible for most financial aid. Families earning between $30,001 and $48,000 pay around $11,516 and families earning more than $110,001 pay around $19,780.
About 1,433 freshmen qualified for state and federal financial aid in a recent year. And, 1,370 received grants and scholarships of $7,483 on average; 957 of those students received an average of $2,953 in institutional grants and scholarships.

As an incoming freshman, you’re going to be adjusting quickly to a new way of learning and studying. At first, you might feel as if you don’t quite belong but this is natural. By the time you finish your spring semester, you’ll be better adjusted and probably even have made some friends. Excellent classes and social environment are just some of the reasons that students stay on at a university from year to year. Each university and college keeps track of the percentage of freshmen who stay at their school for their second year. This is the retention rate, which at ASU is 67%. This is around average.
The 4-year graduation rate is 28%. The 6-year graduation rate goes up slightly to 40%. These are particularly low but may be explained by excessive transfers or students taking a very long time to complete their degrees because they attend part-time. It’s something to be aware of before you attend school here, but it doesn’t mean you necessarily won’t be able to graduate from this university.
If you are working during the semester, your work hours or even another class may clash with one or more of your other classes. But that doesn’t mean it will help to drop the class, especially if it isn’t offered every semester. Instead, you could check out distance or online learning, which is offered for individual classes.
The most popular degree programs include business, management, marketing, and related services; multi/interdisciplinary studies; parks, recreation, leisure, and fitness studies; health professions and related programs; and psychology.
