Tuition and Financial Aid


UT Dallas Catalog icon

The estimated costs below are meant to serve as a guide for college-planning purposes and are based on typical costs a student may incur each semester. Actual costs will vary from student to student. The cost of tuition is based on the number of semester credit hours taken each semester, the term in which enrollment at UT Dallas began, and other program-specific costs. Cost-of-living expenses also will vary from student to student. Personal-spending patterns, living-arrangement choices and other factors will influence these costs.

For more information visit the UT Dallas Office of Financial Aid, Estimated Cost Calculator and Tuition Table.

Tuition Plans

Beginning with the 2018–2019 academic year, all new incoming students will have the opportunity to choose from two rate plans: the guaranteed tuition plan and the variable tuition plan.

The guaranteed tuition plan locks in your rate for four years (12 consecutive semesters). The rates under this plan are higher than a traditional plan in the first year because they are based on the projected average of tuition rates over the next four years. Rates in the variable tuition plan are lower than the guaranteed plan in the first year but are subject to annual rate changes. New incoming students will be defaulted into the variable tuition rate plan, but will have the option to enroll in the guaranteed tuition rate plan.

Tuition at UT Dallas is on a sliding scale. The more semester credit hours you take a semester, the cheaper the semester credit hours will be. Students taking online courses will pay $80 per semester credit hour distance learning fee in addition to regular semester credit hour fees. Payment plans for tuition and short-term loans are available. For more information, please visit the UT Dallas Bursar’s Office.

Tuition Plans

Texas Residency (in-state)

Applicants and enrolled students at The University of Texas at Dallas are each classified as a resident or nonresident for tuition purposes. Texas residency is not based on citizenship, but based on when you moved to the state and how long you have continuously resided here. Please visit Establishing Texas Residency for detailed information.

Oklahoma Waiver

UT Dallas also offers a waiver for nonresidents enrolled in Texas public universities who are residents of Oklahoma. Learn more here.
