Cost of Attendance

Definition of Terms

Tuition & Fees – The average cost of tuition and fees for a typical undergraduate student based on enrolling for 15 hours per semester for the fall and spring semester; or the average cost of tuition and fees for a typical graduate student based on enrolling for 10 hours per semester for the fall and spring semester. The actual costs that a student incurs will vary depending on the student’s degree program and whether there are additional fees.

Books & Supplies – The average cost of books and supplies for a typical full time student for an entire academic year.

Room & Board – A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live in the Rio Grande Valley while attending school. For students living on campus, it is based on average residence hall rates and the largest meal plan available. Actual costs may vary by individual choices related to location and circumstances.

Transportation – The transportation allowance includes the cost of travel between the student’s residence and the institution, and travel necessary to complete a course of study. Costs may vary because of the student’s place of permanent residence, or the student’s place of residence while in school.

UTRGV local RGV students save even more!

For residents of the Rio Grande Valley, being a commuter student has many benefits. Students that live in the RGV and commute to campus have even greater savings as they do not have to pay room and board expenses for living on campus or off campus. Also, there are many local public transportation options for getting to the UTRGV campus.

For all students who need to travel between the UTRGV campuses, UTRGV offers free regularly scheduled shuttle service.  Additionally, the local Metro bus lines allow UTRGV students to ride free.

Miscellaneous personal expenses - The allowance for miscellaneous personal expenses includes clothing, laundry and cleaning, personal hygiene and grooming supplies.

Please note: The amounts below for books & supplies, room & board, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses are averages and will vary widely depending on the circumstances and needs of each student (e.g. place of residence, miles driven throughout the academic year, personal expenses, eating in a campus residence hall or cooking for oneself, etc.).
