Tuition Deadlines

  • There is no tuition deposit. The tuition bill is generated only after students begin to register for classes on Friday, Aug. 19. Tuition balances must be paid no later than Monday, Aug. 29 at 5 PM or else one's courses for will be dropped and the late registration process will be needed (which is a headache best avoided!!). This additionally means that it's possible that one's seat will be lost in a course that is waitlisted. If the tuition balance is $0, one must still ensure that "attendance is confirmed" on the bill, which entails the simple click of a button. Academic appointments (TA/AI) and fellowships cannot be approved until the tuition is paid, or until "attendance is confirmed" on what is otherwise a $0 tuition bill.
  • Tuition rates for 2016-17 are published here. See the Liberal Arts column and 9 credit hours (3 courses), which comprises minimum required full-time status. This is standard for single-degree majors in our programs. The cost amounts to to $4,165/semester for TX residents and $8,256/semester for non-residents.
  • DUAL-DEGREE STUDENTS:  Rates for 2016-17 will be published this summer through the above link, which will be approximately 3% higher than the rates currently published for the 2015-16 year. Rates vary by dual-degree program, and at least 12 credit hours (4 courses) per semester is customary in order to complete both degrees within 3 years instead of 4 years.
  • International students:  Whether an international student is receiving funding, s/he must pay a $125/fee per semester, as well as the cost of student insurance (unless covered by a benefits-eligible TA/AI position).
  • In the first semester, there is a one-time $10 charge to obtain a student ID card (charged to What I Owe), and another one-time $10 charge for a General Property Deposit (charged to the tuition bill).
  • Payment Options:  Please see here. All major credit cards - except Visa - are accepted.
