The International Student Special Services Fee is used for the ongoing support of all non-immigrant students enrolled at UT Dallas. It is a mandatory $150 fee for those students and is assessed at the time of registration.

Immigrant categories that are fee-exempt:

  • U.S. citizen
  • Permanent Resident (PR card required)
  • Conditional Resident
  • Temporary Protected Status
  • Refugee
  • Asylee
  • Public Interest Parolee
  • Temporary Residence-Amnesty
  • Undocumented aliens
  • DACA recipients

Any student whose status changes officially to one of the exempt classifications is required to submit proof of that change to the UT Dallas Registrar’s Office and International Student Services Office (ISSO) and will not, subsequently, be assessed the fee.

If the appropriate documentation is submitted prior to Census Day of a semester, the fee for that semester will be refunded based on the tuition refund schedule as published in the UT Dallas Academic Calendar.
