“The academic programs of high quality that will be offered on the campus of Costa Rica, directly benefit students in Central and Latin America, while simultaneously expanding the footprint and academic influence of Texas Tech on the world stage,” said Mike Galyean , rector of the University.

The campus is located in Avenida Escazu, in Escazu, next to the CIMA hospital, a private hospital affiliated with the Dallas (Texas) based Baylor University Medical Centre. The TTU  and will have a capacity for 1,300 students. Classes will be taught by professors from Texas, as well as local and students, to enroll must be fluent in English, since all programs are in that language.

As to the cost, the University explained that will be “more than the cost of American-international institutions in San Jose, but less than an enrollment abroad in US universities with accommodation and food.” However, students may also apply for a scholarship program, which is based on merit.

The university says it the investment in the campus is US$15 million dollars.

According to Casa Presidencial the decision by TTU came about following a personal visit to Texas by President Solis back in 2015.
