Miscellaneous Expenses include the following:

Books & Supplies – The average cost of books and supplies per semester. Actual costs may vary by enrollment.

Transportation – The transportation allowance is provided each semester to assist students who require transportation to campus from out of town and vice versa, not to maintain a vehicle. University shuttles and the Austin city buses transport students around campus and Austin for free.

Personal Expenses – This allowance includes everything from clothing and laundry to going to a movie or buying a pizza. This estimate is provided for personal planning purposes only; it does not represent a direct cost of attending the University.

Longhorn Fixed Tuition is an optional tuition program available only to undergraduate students enrolling at UT Austin for the first time. Longhorn Fixed Tuition rates are valid for four consecutive academic years so the rates are guaranteed each semester the student is enrolled during this time period. Fixed tuition rates are higher than traditional rates because they are based on the projected average of flat rate tuition over the next four years.
