The Installment Plan

The installment plan is available in the fall and spring semesters, but not for summer sessions, and allows the student to pay in three payments:

  • The student must electronically sign a promissory note at the My Tuition Bill website in UT Direct before payment will be accepted.
  • The first payment is approximately half the total tuition; it is the smaller of the two amounts showing on My Tuition Bill and includes a $15 installment fee.
  • Fall 2016 Installment Plan due dates:
    • First installment payment for students who pre-registered:
    • Undergraduates— August 10, 2016
    • Graduates— August 29, 2016
      • Second installment payment September 23, 2016
      • Third installment payment October 21, 2016

Zero Bill

If you have a zero ($0.00) tuition bill, you still need to confirm your attendance. Go to My Tuition Bill to complete your registration. You must confirm your attendance before 5 p.m. (central time) on the day of the deadline or your classes will be canceled

Financial Aid

On My Tuition Bill, click View Bill, then if your financial aid fully covers your tuition and fees, click Pay with Financial Aid. Because financial aid funds are not released immediately, your tuition bill will state a balance due until the funds are released.

If the financial aid does not fully cover your bill, the amount due will be reduced accordingly and you will need to pay the balance due by the deadline.

Outside Scholarships

The majority of private donor scholarships are disbursed through the Office of Financial Aid (OFA). In most cases, scholarship donors will send checks directly to the university for processing, but not always. Tuition will be adjusted after OFA processes the scholarship.
