Undergraduate International - Cost Tuition & Fees

Tuition and expenses

Texas law requires that non-U.S. citizens pay non-resident tuition when enrolling in any public, state-supported institution of higher education in Texas. The amount of tuition and fees will vary by the number and type of courses for which the student registers. Estimated* expenses for an international student for one academic year (not including summer sessions) are as follows:

International students must submit proof of financial support in order to receive an initial Form I-20 for F-1 non-immigrant status. Currently enrolled international students must also submit updated proof of financial support when changing degree level or applying for an extension of their Form I-20.

The information below details estimated expenses for a graduate international student paying non-resident fees and living off-campus.

Students must have adequate finances to cover all expenses for the entire length of their program of study. International students should familiarize themselves with their home country governmental regulations pertaining to currency exchange and bank wire transfer of funds.

Tuition is assessed each semester and is based on the number of credit hours in which students enroll. F-1 international students are required to enroll full-time each semester; full-time enrollment for undergraduate students is 12 credit hours.  Students receiving a scholarship are required to take 15 credit hours each fall and spring semester. (30 credit hours per year)

Tuition and fees for special programs (such as the Nursing) may be slightly higher or lower than the tuition and fees for other programs.

Living expenses in the One Academic Year category are based on a 9-month time frame. F-1 international students who begin enrollment at UT Tyler in a fall or spring semester are not required to enroll in the summer session. Remaining in Tyler during the summer break is optional. Students are urged, however, to estimate and budget accordingly if they intend to remain in the United States during the summer break.

The estimated cost of transportation does not include the cost of purchasing and maintaining an automobile or the cost of travel to and from a student’s home country.

All cost and fees are subject to change yearly.
