Tuition, Fees and Scholarships
Tuition and Fees
Students enrolled in the Professional MBA (PMBA) program will complete 53 credit hours. Visit theUT Dallas Bursar’s Office for more details as well as the payment plans for tuition and short term loans.
The tuition of the PMBA if you take 2 courses (6 credit hours) every Fall, Spring and Summer and finish in 3 years is about $38,000. Students taking online courses will pay an additional $80 per credit hour as distance learning fee.
Tuition at UT Dallas is on a sliding scale, the more credit hours you take a semester the cheaper the credit hours are, and the sooner you finish the degree the lower the cost of the degree. UT Dallas also offers a guaranteed tuition plan, so whatever the credit hour rate is when you come into your program that will be your credit hour rate during your program.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
In relation to financial support, in general the Teaching Assistantships (TA) and Research Assistantships (RA) positions are reserved only for PhD and a few Full-Time Cohort MBA students as part of their admissions package. We do not have that form of assistance for students in the PMBA program. However, some PMBA students may work their way into a TA/RA positions through contacts with faculty in the various areas after being a student for two long semesters.
New and continuing students can apply for our Dean’s Excellence Scholarship. This is our primary means of supporting our Professional MBA students financially. This is a competitive scholarship program for incoming students the main criterion is the GMAT/GRE score and the GPA. The scholarship not only provides you with $1,000 (one-time cash) for the year, but also if you receive the scholarship, you qualify for in-state, Texas-resident tuition for the entire academic year.
Students may also apply for financial aid through the UT Dallas Financial Aid Office. The UT Dallas Office of Financial Aid works closely with all admitted students who have completed a financial aid application and who may be eligible for loans, grants or a combination of the two, based on need. Short-term loan programs are available for international students as well.
