The Guaranteed Tuition Plan is designed to help new students and their families better plan for the cost of a college education. The Tuition Promise dedicates resources to cover the tuition and mandatory fees for newly-enrolling students whose families earn $25,000 or less annually and who meet other specific qualifications.
scholarship programs, available for undergraduate and
graduate students, are administered by a department
or program and are awarded based on academic
merit and achievement. Students should contact the
department or program of their chosen discipline for
information about the availability of scholarships.
Applicants and students who are awarded a UT Dallas competitive scholarship and are classified as non-resident/out-of-state in their admission letter may receive in conjunction with the scholarship a "competitive scholarship waiver." This waiver allows a student to pay tuition at the resident/in-state rate. The State of Texas strictly limits how many competitive scholarship waivers may be offered, and the awarding of such waivers is at the sole discretion of the University.
