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

3.80 Average Rating
UTD is the most expensive 4-year university of the state of Texas. Judging from my visits to other colleges such as UT Austin, Texas Southern, Prairie View, and the University of Houston, the money is well worth it.
Deona from Houston, TX
This school is not as expensive as many other schools, to be honest its not expensive at all and I live on campus!!! This school gives out soo many scholarships a year, hence money is no excuse for not coming here especially for upcoming freshman. Let me tell you now, there are a few scholarships only freshman and first year transfers are eligible for that I wish I would have known about and the best part is that most scholarships are for all 4 years as long as you keep your GPA up and you can even upgrade them for more cash!! How awesome is that!!

UTD is the place to be if you like a bit of challenge, have passion for your major (but we also have an undeclared section), love fun festivals, and can rock orange and green!!

You definitely get the bang for the buck at UTD. What you learn here is definitely worth the price you pay for it. Besides that, the school is also very generous with their financial aid packages. They give full-tuition plus a stipend to incoming freshmen based on their GPA and ACT/SAT scores. If your test scores are high, but your GPA is not so good, they have a scholarship for you too. In addition to these scholarships, the school also has many other scholarships that they give to the students. Your financial aid advisor will really help you if you are worried about your package, but just don't go at the beginning of the year when a lot of people are going to ask questions about theirs too.
June from Irving, TX
To add to all the fun events and organizations, it's a relief to know that everything is free! Some events may ask for donations, but you're under no obligation. You can play pool or ping-pong anytime you want or even go workout at the gym and play a pickup game of basketball or racquetball. But the best part is the free food and free shirts given at a lot of the events! About 85% of the events offer free food, and more than half give out T-shirts. You'll never have to go shopping for food or clothes again! Most importantly though, you're getting a grade ‘A’ quality education (Fun Fact: UTD is one of the best public schools in Texas, providing a private school quality education). Once you step foot on campus, you're guaranteed to leave a new person.
Perry from Cypress, TX
This place is really worth every penny you pay for tuition. There are tons of scholarships for students available, and if you don't get any, don't worry. The financial aid office is very generous and will try to help you cover it. If you still have problems with financial aid, you can still get a scholarship upgrade if you get at least a 3.75 GPA with 90 hours or fewer.
IheartTEMOC from TX
There are a lot of scholarships that UTD offers, and the financial aid offices does their best to find all the money you need to attend, even it that is student loans. But because of the numerous amounts of scholarships most people hardly have to get loans or pay anything at all. There are apartments on campus if you do not wish to live in this resident hall, and the apartments allow you to have pets.
Lindsay from Richardson, TX
Housing at UTD is the best that you'll see anywhere and the apartments are a good price. The school is also very generous with scholarships and financial aid. I definitely feel that I've gotten my money's worth with what I've learned and experienced. The only downside is the meal plans that all freshman living on campus are required to have. The dining hall is terrible on the weekends and closes at 7pm on Saturday and Sundays. Thankfully after freshman year, when you're required to move from the residence hall to the apartments, you'll have a full kitchen and will no longer need the meal plan.
