Charges for Dropped Classes

If you decrease your hours, it may change what you owe and affect your financial aid.

Full-time undergraduate charges are based on 12 semester hours.

Full-time graduate, law, and veterinary medicine charges are based on 9 semester hours.

If you go from full-time to part-time status during a term, a percentage charge may be applied. It is based on the number of days between the first day of classes and the day you drop hours.

The UT Board of Trustees determines fees for hourly maintenance, tuition, technology, facility, transportation, library, study abroad, health, programs, and service fees. The charges are assessed according to the number of hours you are taking when your statement is generated.
