Tuition, Expenses, and Financial Aid



Tuition and Mandatory Fees

(Fees are Subject to Change)

Tuition and fee rates are set by the UNT System Board of Regents in accordance with provision of Texas statutes. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice by action of the Texas Legislature and/or the UNT System Board of Regents. A schedule of Tuition and Fees is contained in the Appendices. Please visit the Student Financial Services web site at: www.unt.edu/unt-dallas/sfs for the most current tuition and fee rates.

Payment of Tuition and Fees

Students are expected to pay tuition and fees at the time of registration, have an approved financial aid program arranged by the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships Office prior to registration, or pay by installments. A student who fails to make payment of tuition and fees, including any incidental fees, by the due date may be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made. A student who fails to make full payment prior to the end of the term/semester may be denied credit for the work done that term/semester. Any delinquent balances, including late fees, are subject to all collection efforts allowed by law.

State law does not permit the University to extend credit; bills must be paid when due. Check and credit card payments are accepted online at my.unt.edu. Checks paid in person must be made payable to the University of North Texas at Dallas for the exact amount to be paid.

Checks on which money must be advanced and postdated checks are not accepted.

Personal checks are accepted for tuition and other fees.

Payment Methods for Tuition and Fees

Credit card payments (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) and check payments may be made through self-service at my.unt.edu. Tuition and fee payments also may be made by personal check, money order, cashier’s check, or cash at Student Financial Services at UNT Dallas. Student Financial Services requires the student identification number to be recorded on all check and money order payments made in person.

Bills are not mailed for registration. Account balances and schedule information may be obtained through self-service at my.unt.edu.

Cash Payments

Cash payments are accepted only at Student Financial Services at UNT Dallas. Please do not mail cash payments to UNT Dallas.

Option to Pay Tuition by Installment

UNT Dallas provides for the payment of tuition and fees during the fall and spring terms/semesters through the following alternatives:

  1. full payment of tuition and fees upon registration or by the payment deadline for early registration; or
  2. selection of the installment plan. By selecting the installment plan, the student understands that it is a contractual agreement and agrees to make the installment payments by the due dates indicated.

Tuition and fees must be paid in full for each summer term upon registration or by the payment deadline for early registration. Tuition payment by installment is not offered during the summer.

The Texas Legislature has the authority to modify or eliminate installment payment of tuition at each regular or called legislative session.

Student Financial Obligation Agreement

Students who select to pay tuition and fees by installment plan will be required to enter into a written agreement reflecting the terms and conditions of the plan.

Non-Refundable Fee for Tuition by Installment

A $15.00 non-refundable handling fee will be charged to the student’s account each semester the installment plan is selected. Students who choose the installment plan option recognize they are in a contractual relationship and accept the terms of the installment plan contract. See the online Schedule of Classes at www.unt.edu/unt-dallas/sfs/paymentinstallment.htm for procedures and policies concerning installment payment of tuition.

Residency Regulations for Tuition Purposes

Rules and regulations for determining residence status are specified under Title 3 Section 54.052 of the Texas Education Code and are available at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, College For All Texans web site at www.collegeforalltexans.com. In general, students must domicile and physically reside in Texas for the 12-month period immediately preceding their initial registration in an educational institution in Texas. Other factors may be considered for residency determination for tuition.

Students who are not legal residents of Texas must pay nonresident tuition, including the statutory tuition charges and standard university fees approved by the Board of Regents.Admission requirements for nonresidents are the same as for resident students.

Certain residency exceptions do not affect actual residency status but do allow for a nonresident tuition exemption. Refer to “Tuition and Fee Waivers” in this policy for further information.

Student Responsibility for Residence Classification

The student is responsible for registering under the proper residence classification. It is the student’s responsibility to discuss any questions concerning residence with the proper authority in the Office of Admissions and/or the Office of the Registrar at or before registration.

Any student erroneously classified as a resident will be reclassified and required to pay all out-of-state tuition due. Attempts to evade nonresident fees may subject the student to the statute penalty and possible disciplinary action under the University’s Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct Policy (7.001).

Students who believe they have been erroneously classified have the opportunity for appeal. The appeal is to be made to the authority by whom the original classification was assigned, either in the Office of Admissions or Office of the Registrar.

Change of Status from Nonresident to Resident

A student who is at any time classified as a nonresident retains nonresident status until reclassification as a resident is applied for and officially approved by the Registrar.

Change of Status from Resident to Nonresident

Students who are classified as residents but become nonresidents by virtue of any change of domicile must notify the Registrar of such change immediately. Students who believe they have been erroneously classified have the opportunity for appeal. The appeal is to be made to the authority by whom the original classification was assigned, either in the Office of Admissions or Office of the Registrar.

Undergraduate Semester Credit Hour Limit

(Fees are Subject to Change)

In accordance with Texas Education Code 54.014, all resident students enrolling for the first time at a state institution of higher education in Texas will be subject to paying non-resident tuition rates for excessive undergraduate credit hours.

The following credit hours do not count toward the limit:

  • Credit hours earned after a baccalaureate degree;
  • Credit hours earned through examination, (AP or CLEP);

Tuition and Fee Refunds

A student who drops a course or withdraws from the university within certain time periods may be entitled to a partial refund of tuition and fees. These refunds are calculated according to the category and time schedule listed below. Refund periods and rates are subject to change by the state legislature. Delinquent payment fees, late registration charges, publication fees and installment handling fees are non-refundable. Any financial obligation to UNT Dallas must be resolved before any refunds will be made.

Class Drop Refunds

Refunds are made for any course dropped through the 12th class day for the long semester. Corresponding dates are set for summer terms/sessions. See the Academic Calendar at www.unt.edu/unt-dallas/academics/calendar.htm for specific dates. The semester’s first class day is always the first official university day of classes and not the first day of an individual’s class. Refunds for dropped classes are processed after the mid-semester. Note: If all classes for the semester are dropped, see “Schedule of Withdrawal Refunds” in this section.

Students applying for financial aid are required to notify Student Financial Aid and Scholarships before dropping any class to learn how it will affect current or future financial aid eligibility. Contact Financial Aid at dallas.financialai@unt.edu.

Withdrawal From the University

Withdrawal refunds are determined by the number of enrolled semester credit hours at the time of withdrawal. Withdrawal percentages are applied to the total amount of tuition and fees as prescribed by state law, not the amount paid. The withdrawal schedule and percentages of refund shown below pertain to total withdrawal from the term/semester and are mandated by the state legislature. The term/semester’s first class day is always the first official university day of classes and not the first day the individual attends class. A withdrawal refund is based on the day of withdrawal, regardless of the date the class first meets.

Additional information may be found at www.unt.edu/unt-dallas/paymentrefunds.htm or by contacting Student Financial Services.

The withdrawal schedule and percentage of a pro-rata refund pertain to total withdrawal from the term/semester and are mandated by federal law. Please contact Student Financial Aid and Scholarships regarding pro-rata refund schedules and percentages.

Students Called to Active Duty

Texas Education Code 54.006 (f) indicates, “Beginning with the summer semester of 1990, if a student withdraws from an institution of higher education because the student is called to active military service, the institution, at the student’s option, shall: (1) refund the tuition and fees paid by the student for the semester in which the student withdraws; (2) grant a student, who is eligible under the institution’s guidelines, an incomplete grade in all courses by designating ‘withdrawn-military’ on the student’s transcript; or (3) as determined by the instructor, assign an appropriate final grade or credit to a student who has satisfactorily completed a substantial amount of course work and who has demonstrated sufficient mastery of the course material.”

In order to be eligible for options under this law, a UNT Dallas student must produce a copy of his or her orders. Withdrawal may or may not require that the student talk with each instructor depending on timing in the semester; however, the latter two options do require that the student talk with his or her instructors and come to a decision as to which solution is best for each class given timing and circumstances. A student called to active duty may consider the following options:

  1. Withdrawal with a full refund of appropriate tuition/fees;
  2. Incomplete grades with the one-year I (Incomplete) removal time limit starting with the end of active duty; and/or
  3. A final grade if the course is essentially over and the course material has been sufficiently mastered (determined by the instructor).

Tuition Rebates for Certain Undergraduates

Section 54.0065 of the Texas Education Code provides up to a $1,000 tuition rebate to resident undergraduate students. To be eligible for a rebate under this program, a student must:

  1. Have enrolled for the first time in an institution of higher education in the Fall 1997 semester or later;
  2. Request a rebate for course work related to a first baccalaureate degree received from a general academic teaching institution;
  3. Have been a resident of Texas and have been entitled to pay resident tuition at all times while pursuing the degree;
  4. If enrolled for the first time in Fall 2005 or later, graduate within four calendar years for a four-year degree or within five calendar years for a five-year degree if the degree is in a program determined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to require more than four years to complete; and
  5. Have attempted no more than 3 hours in excess of the minimum number of semester credit hours required to complete the degree under the catalog under which the student will graduate.

Hours attempted include transfer credits, course credit earned exclusively by examination (except that, for the purpose of this program, only the number of semester credit hours earned exclusively by examination in excess of 9 semester credit hours is treated as hours attempted), courses dropped after the official census date, for-credit developmental courses, optional internship and cooperative education courses and repeated courses. Courses dropped for reasons that are determined by the institution to be totally beyond the control of the student shall not be counted.

For students concurrently earning a baccalaureate degree and a Texas teaching certificate, required teacher education courses shall not be counted to the extent that they are over and above the free electives allowed in the baccalaureate degree program.

Any student with more than 3 hours of F, W, WF, NP or I is ineligible to receive the $1,000 tuition rebate.

Effective for students who enroll for the first time in Fall 2005 or later, an otherwise eligible student may be eligible for a tuition rebate without satisfying the requirements of item 4 above if the student is awarded a baccalaureate degree and the institution determines that the student’s failure to comply was caused by a demonstrated hardship condition.

For additional information concerning tuition rebates, contact the Office of the Registrar or your academic advisor.

Correction of Errors

Students are responsible for any additional amounts due UNT Dallas resulting from auditing and correction of records after registration fees have been paid including all registration assessment errors, change from off-campus to on-campus classes, invalid employment waivers, etc.

Returned Checks

A returned check is defined as any check, similar sight order or electronic bank draft returned to the university unpaid due to no fault of the bank or the university.

The address on the check and/or the address in the official university records is used. The check is payable on or before 10 working days from the date of the notice. Only cash, cashier’s check or money order is accepted for payment of the returned check and service charge ($25 per check).

A student may be withdrawn immediately from the university if payment is not made within the stated time period. DO NOT, however, stop attending classes unless you receive official notification of your withdrawal. Notification of withdrawal is made to the address on the check and/or the address in the official university records.

Check-issuing privileges are suspended while any returned check and/or service charge are outstanding.

If the university receives three or more returned checks during an academic year, the check-issuing privileges of the individual are revoked.

If all attempts to collect a returned check have failed, civil or criminal legal action may be taken in accordance with Texas state law (Sections 31.06 and 32.41 of the Texas Penal Code).

Stop-Payment on Tuition Checks

A student who has not already done so will be withdrawn from UNT Dallas on the date the returned stop-payment check is received by UNT Dallas. A returned check service charge ($25 per check) will be assessed. Tuition refund charges are based on normal refund policy.

If a student wishes to be withdrawn, the Office of the Registrar should always be contacted as soon as possible.

  2. Refunds and Repayments. If you officially withdraw, cease attendance, or are administratively withdrawn from UNT Dallas, any refund of tuition and fees and other university charges will be assessed for return to programs from which you (or your parents if they received a Federal Parent Loan) were originally paid. An additional “repayment” calculation will be performed to determine if you must repay a portion of the assistance paid directly to you for living expenses.

    Student Financial Aid and Scholarships personnel will apply the federally mandated formula for the return of financial aid funds. Funds will be returned to the programs from which the money was paid to you in the following order:
    • Federal Stafford Loan Program
    • Federal Perkins Loan Program
    • Federal Parent Loan Program (PLUS)
    • Federal Pell Grant Program
    • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
    • Other Title IV Programs
    • Other Federal, State, Private or Institutional Student Aid

In addition, it is possible you will owe a repayment of unearned financial aid funds if you cease enrollment prior to the 60 percent completion point of any enrollment period for which you received financial aid funds. The completion point is based on the total number of class days in an enrollment period.

  1. Official transcripts are not issued to any student who has an unpaid account or owes a defaulted federal student loan received from any university.
  2. Federal and state regulations require that each student must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) to be eligible for financial aid programs. Minimum standards must be achieved by the end of any given enrollment period at UNT Dallas. Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) is defined in both quantitative and qualitative measures. The quantitative measure requires an undergraduate to:
    1. complete all course degree requirements within a maximum of 180 semester credit hours of enrollment; and
    2. complete a minimum number of hours by the end of each academic year based on each student’s registered hours.

Using the following chart to determine the number of hours that must be completed, the student should locate the total number of registered hours. The student must then complete, pass and earn credit in the number of hours listed below.

Hours Required
Number of current registered hours Minimum number of current earned hours and pass/no pass hours
1 1
2 2
3-5 3
6-11 6

Classification
Status Undergraduate Fall/Spring Undergraduate Summer
Full-time (12 or more hours) 12 or more hours
3/4-time (9–11 hours) 9–11 hours
1/2-time (6–8 hours) 6–8 hours

All academic requirements are effective whether or not financial aid has ever been applied for or received. For students not meeting satisfactory academic progress (SAP) at the end of an enrollment period, the academic progress will be reevaluated at the end of the next term/semester attended at UNT Dallas to determine student eligibility for financial aid.

The qualitative measure requires an undergraduate to maintain the minimum cumulative UNT Dallas grade point average of 2.0.

Students in an academic program under the undergraduate career (major or concentration) are required to enroll in at least 6 undergraduate hours per term to be considered for financial aid.

Financial aid recipients must notify Student Financial Aid and Scholarships before dropping courses or withdrawing from the university. Current award year or future aid eligibility may be affected. Enrollment hours for loan deferment and financial aid eligibility may differ from those published in this catalog. Also see “Enrollment Certification” in the Enrollment section of this catalog.

If students receive all failing grades (any combination of F’s, WF’s and NP’s), attendance in all classes will be reviewed. If attendance cannot be confirmed via official UNT Dallas Registrar records, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships personnel will apply the federally mandated calculation for the return of financial aid funds. Unearned Title IV funds (aid) will be returned to the programs from which the money was paid to the student (or the student’s parent) and it possible that the student will owe a repayment to the university.

Additional and specific financial aid and scholarship information is available at www.unt.edu/unt-dallas/finaid.

Return to Title IV

If you officially withdraw, cease attendance, or are administratively withdrawn from UNT Dallas, federal regulations require the institution to calculate the amount of Federal Title IV funds (aid) earned during the term from which you withdrew. Factors considered in the calculation include: date of withdrawal, the total amount of Title IV aid eligibility, tuition and fee charges, room and board charges (if applicable), and class attendance.

Student Financial Aid and Scholarships personnel will apply the federally mandated calculation for the return of financial aid funds. Unearned Federal Title IV funds (aid) will be returned to the programs from which the money was paid to you (or your parent) in the following order:

  1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  2. Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  3. Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans
  4. Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans
  5. Federal Perkins Loans
  6. Federal Parent (PLUS) Loans

  10. National SMART Grants
  11. TEACH Grants
  12. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
  13. Other Title IV Programs
  14. Other Federal, State, Private or Institutional Student Aid

It is possible you will owe a repayment of unearned financial aid funds to the University if you cease enrollment prior to the sixty percent (60%) completion point of any enrollment period for which you received financial aid funds. The completion point is based on the total number of class days in an enrollment period.

If you receive all failing grades (any combination F’s, WF’s and NP’s), attendance in all classes will be reviewed. If attendance cannot be confirmed via official UNT Dallas Registrar records, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships personnel will apply the federally mandated calculation for the return of financial aid funds. Unearned Federal Title IV funds (aid) will be returned to the programs from which the money was paid to you (or your parent) and it is possible that you will owe a repayment to the university.

Withdrawing from classes or failing to complete and pass registered hours may affect your future eligibility for financial aid. You must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements to maintain eligibility for financial aid as defined by Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
