Latest information on operational modifications for fall 2021 Roadrunner Roadmap

Tuition and Fees Process

In line with our history of keeping tuition and fees as low as possible for students, our FY 21 and FY 22 alternatives for tuition and fees increases includes a variety of scenarios ranging from $134.68 to $387.89 per academic year (a 2.5% to 7.2% increase). The former equates to increases that account solely for inflation; the latter reflects increases that would accommodate all the prioritized needs for advancing student success.

Guiding Principles

As UTSA continues to grow, the foundation we strive to attain includes:

  • Prudent fiscal stewardship
  • Specific benefit, impact and value for UTSA students
  • Demonstrated significant institutional need for any requested increases
  • Affordable tuition, while ensuring cost of attending UTSA remains commensurate with our UT System, Texas Emerging Research University, and aspirant peer institutions

Tuition and Fee Proposal Scope

Tuition increases for FY 21 and FY 22 will help support these and other initiatives:

  • Increased financial aid to enable college going and help defray their cost of attendance
  • Improved enrollment services to enhance recruitment, admission and other registration-related services as well as increased faculty to support UTSA’s planned growth
  • Enhanced online learning opportunities that increase course access and availability to improve student success and facilitate timely graduation
  • Additional staffing, programming and scholarships that increase marketable skills through on-campus work opportunities and promote internships, service learning, undergraduate research, study abroad and other experiences
  • Upgraded classroom and university technologies to improve the student learning experience and support enrollment growth, as well as technology upgrades for the university’s computing and network infrastructure, and improvements to security operations
  • A continued focus on advancing inclusion with the addition of two licensed police and advocacy professionals
  • Deepened student learning through increased recitations and other support taught by an increase in graduate teaching assistants
  • Staffing and operational expenses for UTSA’s new College for Health, Community and Policy and School of Data Science to further prepare students for the jobs of the future
  • Expanded library hours (to 24/7 at the John Peace Library and 24/5 at the Downtown Campus Library), additional study areas in the JPL and access to UTSA’s extensive material collections
  • Increased advising services to add advisors to accelerate growth in student retention and graduation, as well as expand advising and career services to graduate students to promote degree completion
