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

3.82 Average Rating
UNT is definitely one of the best schools for your money. It's even been on the national list for the best education for your money three years in a row. My best friend goes to TCU and pays SO much more than I do, for the same quality education!
Leslie from Denton, TX
You get so many things for free when you're taking classes it isn't even funny. check out the website for more info, there is too much for me to type our here, haha.

UNT has been named one of America's Best College Buys for many years, and is significantly more affordable than most other Texas universities. It is still more expensive than community college, but many students receive at least partial scholarships and since it is such a large university there are plenty of places to work on campus.
Natalie from Plano, TX
Definitely worth the money. I feel like UNT is an amazing secret catch in college education because we have so many distinguished professors that our education surpasses the amount they ask to be paid. They are very fair with fees.
Jade from Cibolo, TX
Every university is expensive but it depends on where you think you belong. So far i've received every bit of information that I believe I payed for and so much more! The meal plan that is mandatory for freshman is a bit pricey but you'll never going hungry! Within the many fees you pay, you can print anytime you want in the computer labs for free, workout at the Recreation Center for free, and access all sorts of things in the library for free also!
Claire from Midlothian, TX
It's not community college cheap but it's alright.
Allison from Grapevine, TX
UNT is noted for it having one of the best educations for the least expensive price. UNT has one of the cheapest tuitions for the standard of education it will provide.
Cara from Richardson, TX
College is expensive. That's true of any university you pick, albeit some cost more than others. But at UNT, you're guaranteed to get the most out your tuition; you just have to know what's available to you. For instance, part of your fees pay for the random computers that are all over campus. These are there for you, so use them! Your library fees are included, and as extensive as Willis Library is, you would be silly not to use it. (I didn't learn this till my second semester... big mistake!!!) Another thing people may not know is that residence halls are always having events that are free for UNT students, and that Bruce Hall tends to be the most proficient at this. Speaking of, Bruce Hall is centrally located on campus, and because of this is a central hub of sorts. In addition to it's location, the cafeteria is being expanded over the summer, which means that Bruce Cafeteria will be able to serve even more people than ever before, and trust me, it gets busy in there!
Christopher from Arlington, TX
ridiculously low tuition price compared to other public universities in texas. dorm prices are pretty pricey, but they're nicer than off campus and so convenient.
