COSTS & FINANCIAL AID

Finances should not be a barrier to getting a world-class education.

 

MOST AFFORDABLE RESEARCH INSTITUTION IN TEXAS!

We understand that when it comes to paying for college, everyone’s financial story is a little different. With more than $214 million in financial aid awarded each year, more than 70% percent of UTEP undergraduates receive financial aid. We work hard everyday to make sure college stays affordable for you and your family. We do all of this while ensuring educational excellence. We offer a variety of financial assistance including grants, private and university scholarships, federal work-study, hourly employment, and loans.

COMPLETE THE FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) takes your family’s tax information into account to determine the types of financial assistance you’ll qualify to receive, in order to cover the cost of attending college. You won’t be able to secure any need-based assistance until you’ve filed—so don’t wait.
