Students

At The University of Texas at Austin, we’re committed to making our first-class education affordable to students from all financial backgrounds. Our Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is here to help you understand your options and resources—and it’s well worth it. With honors programs comparable to any Ivy League education, Longhorn students still pay less than five other Texas public universities, and far less than many comparable flagship universities across America.

When alumni earnings are compared to the net cost of a Texas degree, it’s clear why Texas has been recognized for decades as one of America’s best educational values:

  • Employability: Our graduates are among the world’s most employable, says the Global Employability Survey (2019).
  • 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”
