If you’re an entering freshman, you can put information into the calculator about your background, plans, and finances to determine likely out-of-pocket expenses.
UT’s Budget Estimates
Here’s 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?
Student Residency Classification
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. For more information, contact a classification officer.
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’re studying. For instance, courses in business, engineering, and nursing have added fees.
Indirect costs also vary depending on your housing status.
