Special Programs or Fee Structures

Longhorn Fixed Tuition is an optional tuition program available only to undergraduate students enrolling at UT Austin for the first time.
For four consecutive academic years students will pay a fixed tuition rate each semester. Fixed tuition rates are based on the projected average of flat rate tuition over the next four years. As with traditional flat rate tuition, the fixed tuition amount will vary depending on the school the student is enrolled in as well as the number of hours the student is enrolled.
Students who enroll in Longhorn Fixed Tuition and graduate in four years will be eligible for a total of $3,500 in rebates (inclusive of existing rebate programs). Rebates will be paid upon graduation.

Additional Financial Aid Information

Graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin generally support themselves in one of the following ways: departmental aid in the form of scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships; fellowships administered by the Office of Graduate Studies; need-based financial aid administered by the Office of Financial Aid, and outside funding or employment.
The Cockrell School of Engineering offers academically competitive students financial packages that include one or more fellowships, paid teaching or research positions, insurance and tuition coverage. After completing an admission application, you will be considered for any available fellowships and accompanying support. Graduate committees in each department nominate top applicants for these awards.
Students planning to pursue a doctoral degree receive special consideration for full funding packages, including multi-year fellowship and stipend support. There are also a number of one-year fellowships for both future and current students. Future graduate students usually receive fellowship offers from the Cockrell School in early to mid-spring. Current graduate students usually receive fellowship notifications during the summer.
Both incoming and current students must be nominated for any fellowships available from the Cockrell School. View the list of Graduate Degree Program Contacts ( to visit with the person in your department who can advise you on available fellowship opportunities.
The Engineering Scholarship Program posts information regarding external fellowship opportunities for graduate and postdoctoral students on the Current Scholarships & Fellowships page.
