Estimated Tuition + Fees Cost

UTSA is well aware of the cost to earn a quality post-secondary education. But UTSA historically is less expensive than many other Texas public universities in major metropolitan areas, including Dallas and Houston. We hope you will agree that enrolling at the university is a wise investment in your future and a doorway to fulfilling your dreams.

UTSA Bluebook is an application designed to help the public (with a focus on students and their parents) easily find integrated information about UTSA courses and faculty. It contains statistics on the estimated cost of attendance based on options that best describes you.
