Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Great education with the southern charm we all love!
Brittney from Memphis, TN
The tuition at Martin is affordable. The dorms and meal plans they provide are also no expensive. For in-state residents, the Tennessee Lottery/ Hope Scholarship pay for about half of the tuition costs. It is suggested that each student invests in getting a meal plan because one truly save when it comes to money and getting a wide variety of very good food without having to go out to fast food or buying groceries.
Dexter from Millington, TN
UT Martin is a very affordable school to attend and well worth your money. I went to high school in Kentucky, but because I was from a county that UTM has an agreement with, I still received in-state tuition. Though I did not receive any scholarships when I transferred, I have been able to use only Federal financial aid to pay for my tuition, books, etc; no need to take out outside loans, and I should come out of school with less than $30K of student loan debt. This is surprisingly low for someone who must finance all of their education with loan money; you can receive a quality education at UT Martin while paying less than you might for a new car.
Megan from Rives, TN
Having the TN HOPE Scholarship really helped with the cost, but even without the scholarship it is very affordable.
Sarah from Knoxville, TN
Out of state students get instate tuition as far as I know.

Most of my friends get refund checks which basically means they get paid to attend school because of all the scholarships they have received.

You get what you put into Martin. They give you all the tools to succeed...whether or not if you do is the students choice. There is a gorgeous library full of books and papers...plenty of study halls and workshops after school hours to help you out one on one. It's a fair price for an education with all of the perks they offer.
