Tuition

Undergraduates in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences are charged a flat rate tuition. For all other students, the cost of a semester's enrollment consists of several separate charges: total tuition, which includes tuition and academic sustainability tuition; required fees; special registration fees, if applicable; course related fees for the courses in which the student enrolls; program and service related fees for the student's field and classification; and any optional fees chosen by the student. With the exception of course related fees, the amounts and purposes of these charges are given in this chapter; course related fees are listed in the Course Schedule for each semester and summer session.

Undergraduate students may pursue two majors simultaneously without paying additional tuition. However, the student must pay all program and service related fees assessed by each college. If one of the majors is in the College of Liberal Arts or the College of Natural Sciences, the student is charged the flat rate tuition for that college; he or she must also pay all program and service related fees assessed by the second college. More information about the simultaneous major option is given in the Undergraduate Catalog.

Detailed charts of tuition and required fees and charges, organized by the student's classification and residence status, are published by Student Accounts Receivable. After selecting classes for a future semester, the student may view his or her tuition and fee bill on-line.

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 2004-2005, 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 section 54.069 or the Texas Education Code 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.

Nonresident Tuition for Resident Students

Because the University is a state-assisted institution, tuition rates are lower for Texas-resident students than for nonresidents, including both out-of-state and international students. Rules affecting residency are given in Appendix A. In the following circumstances, a student who is classified as a Texas resident may be charged nonresident tuition.

Undergraduates. Under section 61.0595 of the Texas Education Code, sometimes called the slacker law, students may be subject to the nonresident tuition rate if they enrolled in an institution of higher education for the first time in the fall semester 1999 or later and have attempted 45 or more semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the proposed degree while classified for tuition purposes as Texas residents. Students who are not enrolled in a degree program are treated as if they were enrolled in a program that requires a minimum of 120 semester hours.

When this catalog was published, procedures to support implementation of the statute were under development.

Graduate students. A student who has earned more than ninety-nine semester hours of credit at the doctoral level is subject to the nonresident tuition rate, even if the student is a Texas resident or holds an appointment that would normally entitle the holder to pay resident tuition. This policy, sometimes called the ninety-nine-hour rule, is authorized by section 54.066 of the Texas Education Code. More information about the ninety-nine-hour rule is published on-line and is available from the Office of Graduate Studies at (512) 471-4511.
