Tuition & Financial Aid



How can my student apply for a UT Dallas scholarship?

The Office of Financial Aid has detailed information about UT Dallas scholarship opportunities and programs to help pay for college.

How can my student apply for financial aid?

The University’s Office of Financial Aid is the primary resource for more information about UT Dallas scholarships and those offered by third parties and can guide your student through the application process.

How much does it cost to attend UT Dallas?

Check the Estimated Cost of Attendance at UT Dallas as determined by the Office of Financial Aid each year and based on the average costs students may incur each semester. Actual costs will vary from student to student.

Current and admitted students may obtain an estimate of their tuition and fees from their Orion Self-Service portal. Students must log in to Orion through the Galaxy portal. Once in Orion, click on “Self-Service” and then click on “Campus Finances”. Underneath “Campus Finances”, there will be a link for “Tuition Estimate Self-Service.”

The University offers a Guaranteed Tuition Plan to help families better manage the cost of a college education. The plan also provides an incentive for students to earn degrees in a timely manner since additional courses taken beyond 15 credit hours each semester will, in essence, be free. (However, students may be responsible for per-hour supplemental fees.) 

Charges per semester credit hour for tuition and mandatory fees at UT Dallas depend on the number of hours for which a student enrolls, up to 15. Nonresident students from out of state pay a higher rate per credit hour. Other nonmandatory fees, including parking and housing, will be subject to change.

How do I pay tuition?

The University’s Bursar Office is responsible for billing and payments of tuition and fees. Students can use EZPay to manage their tuition finances and make payments. Parents and guardians require the student’s permission, granted through the student’s authorized user process, to become authorized users in the system and make payments.

The payment options website also has information regarding short-term loans, and installment payment plans. Contact the Bursars Office at 972-883-2612 for questionsregarding tuition and fees.
