Are You In State or Out of State?

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 Office of the Registrar handles your residency classification according to regulations set by the state of Tennessee and the UT System.

What Affects Your Costs?

Some 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 (costs not set by UT) can vary depending on your housing status.
