Locking in Your Rate

Students admitted to a cohort are guaranteed the tuition price in place at the start of their program under the following conditions:

  • The tuition guarantee only applies to courses in the major. Any prerequisite courses, core courses, or leveling courses are subject to different pricing levels and pricing schedules.
  • To ensure the price guarantee, students must be continuously enrolled in the program. A break in enrollment may result in the student being readmitted to the program at the tuition price in place at the time of readmission.
  • To ensure the price guarantee, students must complete the program during the time period prescribed by the degree program. Students who take courses beyond the designed program length may be subject to tuition price increases.
  • Students admitted to the Accelerated Online (AO) programs do not have access to the same services as students participating in on-campus programs. Students in the AO programs do not have access to the Maverick Athletic Center, the student health center, student identification cards, discounted event tickets, and other similar benefits.

Tuition Deadlines

The tuition deadline is the Friday (by 11:59 p.m. CT) before the course begins. If tuition is not paid before the deadline, you will be dropped from your course(s).

If you have unpaid registration charges for the current session, please make your payment no later than 11:59 pm CT on the payment due date to avoid cancellation for non-payment.

For more information about registration and tuition deadlines, please visit Registration and Payment information for Accelerated Online Programs. Students in the Accelerated Online program that are dropped for non-payment on the 1st day of class, can re-register themselves using their MyMav Student Service Center (self-service) if there are seats still available in the course. The non-payment reinstatement deadline is 11:59 p.m. CT on the 1st day of class (the start date). Payment is due by 11:59 p.m. CT the same day. If a student is dropped for non-payment a second time, reinstatement will not be allowed.

Any requests received after 4 p.m. CT on the non-payment reinstatement deadline, weekends or holidays will be considered as received as of the following business day. Backdating to the previous business day is not allowed. If a reinstatement request is received by your major advisor after 4 p.m. CT on the 1st day of class (the start date) your request may not be reviewed or processed.

If you have enrolled in multiple courses for a single start date and you have reconsidered taking one of them and have not paid for the course(s), you must drop the course through your MyMav Student Center before the payment due date to avoid being cancelled from all classes, current and future, that have not yet been graded. The official class day begins at 12:00 a.m. CT.

If you plan to use the UTA website to make payment, please note that it may be down for maintenance at any time. You may also contact Student Accounts at 817-272-2172 for additional information regarding payment.

Cancellation for Non-Payment

If you are enrolled in more than one course and eligible for partial payment (AO BSN students only) but do not pay the balance, you will be dropped from all courses. If the amount you paid would cover the cost of one of the courses, you will still be dropped from all courses.

Additionally, if you enroll in and pay for a course or courses in one start date within a term, then subsequently enroll in another start date during the same term, and do not pay fully for that start, you will be cancelled from all classes for the term that have not yet been graded. Reinstatements will not be allowed unless there is documented university error.
