Tuition and Aid

UT Dallas MBA student meeting with MBA staff to get tuition and financial aid advice

How do I pay for my MBA?

The guaranteed tuition plan locks in your rate for 4-years (12 consecutive semesters).

The rates under this plan are higher than a traditional plan in the first year because they are based on the projected average of tuition rates over the next four years. Rates in the variable tuition plan are lower than the guaranteed plan in the first year but are subject to annual rate changes. New incoming students will be defaulted into the variable tuition rate plan, but will have the option to enroll in the guaranteed tuition rate plan.

Return on Investment

Our program is affordable not only because of its cost but also because of the value returned on your investment in it. For a reasonable price, you are getting a top-ranked national program. For the Full-Time MBA program, our students, on average, pay less than $15,000 and have an exit salary of over $100,000. In addition, many students work through the summer and fall of the program, leaving only two semesters without income. If you are curious about what type of scholarship you could be eligible for, please talk to one of our admission staff members.
