UT’s Budget Estimates

Here is a breakdown of direct (billable) costs and indirect (non-billable) costs for a year’s worth of attendance at UT, including everything from tuition to personal expenses:

In-state Student or Out of State?

You should also find out if you qualify as an in-state student or an out-of-state student. The answer helps determine how much it costs for you to attend UT. The Registrar’s Office handles your residency classification according to regulations set by the state of Tennessee and the UT System.

Student Residency Classification

What Affects Your Costs?

Here are some of the contributing factors:

  • The UT Board of Trustees sets official tuition and fee rates in June each year. New rates take effect each fall.
  • The UT administration submits tuition and fee recommendations to the board as part of the budgeting process.
  • Additional per-credit-hour fees may be assessed depending on what you are studying. For instance, courses in business, engineering, and nursing have added fees.

Indirect costs also vary depending on your housing status.
