What Impacts Cost of Attendance?

Some contributing factors:

  • The UT Board of Trustees sets official tuition and fee rates in June or July each year. Any changes to tuition and fee rates go into 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, architecture, and nursing have added fees.
  • Estimated additional expenses (costs not set by UT) can vary based on your personal spending and needs.
