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.

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.

Guaranteed Tuition Plans

UT Dallas offers a guaranteed tuition plan, so whatever the semester credit hour rate is when you come into your program that will not change during your program. This guaranteed tuition plan is valid for 12 consecutive semesters for new incoming students enrolled for the first time during the fall 2016, spring 2017 or summer 2017 terms. Example: For a student whose first semester of enrollment was fall 2016, this plan will expire after the Summer 2020 term.

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 UT Dallas Bursar’s Office.
