Tuition & Costs

UT Austin is annually recognized as one of the best values in higher education by national publications that evaluate academic quality and cost.  One of the main points to consider when deciding on a university is cost. Tuition is part of the total cost of attendance and can be different depending on whether you’re a Texas Resident or not, an undergrad verses a graduate student, and also what academic college you’re enrolled in - just to name a few.


Flat-rate tuition—which includes all academic program costs—is assessed each semester by college or program, resident status and hours enrolled, with summer tuition discounted 15 percent from the fall/spring rate. Calculate tuition rates and learn about payment and exemption options on the university’s tuition webpage.

Students may also elect to participate in the Longhorn Fixed Tuition program.

Cost of Attendance

Cost of attendance, a term defined by Congress, is the average cost to attend a college or university for one academic year—the fall and spring semesters. It includes tuition and an estimate of average costs for books and supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses.
