Tuition and Fee Proposal Process

UTSA’s tuition and fees proposal process focuses on generating additional revenue for student success programs and financial aid, including enhanced academic advising, peer monitoring for first-generation and transfer students, counseling and career services, supplemental instruction, tutoring and the university’s technology infrastructure.

The Academic Affairs Committee of the U.T. System Board of Regents initiates the Tuition and Fee Proposal process and is governed by seven operating assumptions:
  1. Consultative. The campus community should be involved throughout the process with substantial involvement of students and institutional stakeholders to include student government leadership, community leadership and legislative representation.
  2. Open and transparent. Interested parties should have access to the information used in determining Tuition and Fee rates.
  3. Comprehensive. Proposals must take into account statutory tuition, board authorized/designated tuition, and mandatory fees. Proposals include average course and program fees so students can predict the total academic cost.
  4. Strategic. Proposals must be in alignment with UTSA's strategic plan and address the institution’s greatest priorities.
  5. Impact. Student access and affordability should be taken into account.
  6. Efficiency and Sustainability. Proposals should take into consideration initiatives to reduce costs and improve efficiency or sustainability of the institution.
  7. Economic Factors. Factors such as inflation and regional economic change, market consideration and competitiveness among peer institutions should be considered.
