Public higher education in Texas, and at UT, is still a great value. Our tuition is eighth among our 12-member national comparison group. The average amount of student debt is relatively low, and we continue to be listed as a good value by Kiplinger's and other publications.

Student Services Budget Committee

Tuition policy at The University of Texas at Austin has undergone dynamic changes in recent years. A change in policy often will require a change in practice. Consequently, the committee modified its practices to adapt to these recent changes in the tuition culture on campus.

The student voice in determining the tuition rate for non-academic services is a valued aspect of budget-setting process on the campus. For example, the Texas Education Code mandates that the committee be a student-majority committee, where five of nine voting members must be students.
