Tuition and Required Fees

V.T.C.A., Education Code 54.0512 authorizes the following tuition rates for students registering at the University of Texas at Austin.

Tuition

Undergraduate Students (except Liberal Arts, Natural Sciences, and Pharmacy students)

Texas residents
$88.00 per semester hour of credit

Nonresidents (out-of-state and international)
$306.00 per semester hour of credit

A student may be subject to the nonresident tuition rate if he or she enrolled in an institution of higher education for the first time in the fall semester 1999 or later and has attempted 45 or more semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for his or her proposed degree while classified for tuition purposes as a Texas resident. A student who is not enrolled in a degree program is treated as if he or she were enrolled in a program that requires a minimum of 120 semester hours.

Pharmacy Students (Professional sequence, PharmD)

Texas residents
$176.00 per semester hour of credit

Nonresidents (out-of-state and international)
$612.00 per semester hour of credit

Graduate Students (except MBA, MPA, PPA, and PharmD students)

Texas residents
$132.00 per semester hour of credit

Nonresidents (out-of-state and international)
$350.00 per semester hour of credit

Effective the fall semester 1999, a student who has earned more than ninety-nine semester hours of credit at the doctoral level will be subject to the nonresident tuition rate without regard to the student's residency status or any work appointment that would normally entitle the student to pay resident tuition. Doctoral-level coursework is any coursework taken by a student seeking a doctoral degree after the completion of thirty semester hours of graduate credit. More information is available from the Office of Graduate Studies at (512) 471-4511 or http://www.utexas.edu/ogs/pdn/policies/99in99.html.

MBA, MPA, PPA Students

Texas residents
$132.00 per semester hour of credit

Nonresidents (out-of-state and international)
$568.00 per semester hour of credit

Law Students

Texas residents
$284.00 per semester hour of credit

Nonresidents (out-of-state and international)
$556.00 per semester hour of credit

Flat Rate Tuition Pilot Project (Undergraduate Students in Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences)

Beginning in the fall 2002 semester, undergraduate students in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences will be charged a flat rate tuition. The flat rate tuition for each college will cover all of the student's academic program costs, including tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and all college and course incidental fees and charges for all courses taken. The flat rate tuition does not include any voluntary or optional fees that a student chooses. It also does not include the legislatively required, one-time, refundable new student general property deposit, the mandatory international student health insurance program fee, the international student services fee, the one-time international student orientation fee, or fees for extended field trips requiring students to live off campus.

The rates are different for the two colleges. The rates for 2002-2003, which reflect the different fee and charge structures in the two colleges, are shown in the tables below. The full-time student rate is based on a fourteen-hour per semester course load. There is no restriction on the number of hours a full-time student may take when registered at this rate, provided that registration beyond the maximum number of hours allowed under the quantity of work rule has been approved by the student's academic dean.

Flat rate tuition is being implemented as a pilot project authorized by the 77th Texas Legislature (House Bill 3524) and will continue for three years, through the 2004-2005 academic year. Each year, a new flat rate tuition will be determined for each college based on the level of tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees and charges in effect for that year.

Flat rate tuition schedules for 2002-2003 (includes all academic program costs as defined above)
