UTEP Announces Another Two Years of No Tuition or Mandatory Fee Increases
Flat from 2021 through 2025
EL PASO, Texas (August 24, 2023) – The University of Texas at El Paso will not increase tuition or mandatory fees for the next two academic years – 2023-24 and 2024-25. The announcement comes as The University of Texas System Board of Regents approved the plan to maintain the cost of attending college at UT institutions at the Regent’s fall meeting.
“With the cost of living going up for other things, we want to keep UTEP affordable. That starts with keeping the cost of tuition low for families,” said UTEP President Heather Wilson. “We are grateful for the support from the Regents, our donors and the Texas State Legislature for making this possible.”
UTEP’s average tuition costs for full-time, in-state beginning undergraduates, before aid, is $9,744 – 5% lower than the Texas average for four-year public universities. UTEP last raised tuition for the 2021-22 school year.
“We are committed to removing financial barriers for students who want to attend UTEP,” said Amanda Vazquez, Ph.D., vice president for enrollment management. “Our teams look to match students with critical financial aid, whether that is a federal grant, Paydirt Promise funds or endowed scholarships.”
UTEP financial aid by the numbers:
- 68% of undergraduate students received grants or scholarships – not loans – in the last five years.
- The average first-year student who qualifies for grants and scholarships receives $8,915, and the average out-of-pocket cost of tuition, after aid, is around $800 per year for those students.
- UTEP disburses some $118 million in grants and scholarships each year to undergraduate students.
“$800 a year for tuition and fees is one of the best college values in America,” Wilson said. “And it’s one of the best investments students can make in their future.”
Fall 2024 classes begin Monday, Aug. 28. Students still interested in enrolling at UTEP are invited to contact email@example.com.
