Fund your journey.

No two ways about it—pursuit of a degree is an investment in the future.

Both the quality of the education you’ll receive at The University of Texas at Austin and its comparative cost are important factors to consider when weighing your options. 

That means it’s important to think about things like:

  • Employability: Our graduates are among the world’s most employable. So says the Global Employability Survey conducted by French education consulting firm Emerging, which placed the university higher than any other school in Texas (2015).
  • Starting Salary: CBS MoneyWatch used data to determine that the university’s recent grads, when compared with their peers completing four-year degrees at the nation’s other state “flagship” schools, earn some of the highest median starting salaries (2013).
  • Return on Investment: Using more than 40 data points covering cost, financial aid, graduation rates and salary data, The Princeton Review identified the university as one of the Colleges That Pay You Back—“truly the most exceptional in the nation at delivering great academics, affordable costs and great career foundations” (2016).  

It also means it’s important to pursue scholarships and other financial aid to help offset your cost of attendance—improving your ROI and saving you money.
