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

3.76 Average Rating
This university is one of the best educational values in the state of Texas. There are brand new dorms, and numerous on campus and off-campus apartments within walking distance.
Allison from Burleson, TX
When I looked at tuition and living on campus, I decided to go the dorm route and to take advantage of the capped tuition, I took 15 hours for Fall and Spring 2011. I share a dorm for $272 per month, all bills paid, rather than sharing a very small apartment for more than double that, no bills paid. I can roll out of bed and be in class in five minutes. I am getting an 'Ivy-League' education for pennies...and the networking opportunities at UTA offer a pipeline to getting a job when you get out.
- NOTE: Here's another gold nugget...MAVERICK BIKE SHOP is a student run bicycle shop where you can get maintenance on your bike for cheap. Nicest, best people around, offering quality bike repairs and equipment. You can even borrow a bike for free (check a bike out and return the end of the semester).
- Take Winter-mester and May-mester classes. These are rolled into the other sessions for payment purposes, and with capped tuition, they are a bonus. The downside: they are credit classes held in about 12 days, fast-paced and a lot of work in a very short time. The upside: Not only are they included in the tuition, you are done in a very short time.
Sandra from Arlington, TX
Many job/internships opportunities and an expanding campus.
Kristina from Grand Prairie, TX
A lot cheaper than those other Big Universities and close to home.
Anthony from Plano, TX
Absolutely!!
Samantha from Plano, TX
This is a great medium priced school. There is a tuition cap (around $4.5k per semester) so you can take upwards of 12 hours and not pay more. Also, there is 'The Maverick Promise' scholarship. This will pay tuition (after FASFA aid) if you are 25 years old and make less than $60k a year. This was very big in my decision coming here.
Alexander from Texarkana, TX
For being a University, UTA is a very good priced school. Plus they offer many scholarships.
Cindy from Arlington, TX
It’s not too pricey at some point. In my case, I used most of my money on food and gas. Because I’m commuting, I have to use money on gas, food, and places that my friends and I want to hang. But if you think about it, it’s worth it because it’s giving you tons of opportunity.
Diem-Phuc from Dallas, TX
Scholarships and financial aid will always help, but this is one of the cheaper universities in the metroplex (one year at TCU costs the same as four years at UTA!)
Cassandra from Weatherford, TX
UTA is one of the cheapest four year universities.
