Tuition Costs

At UNT, 12 hours is considered full-time for undergraduate students during a long semester (Fall and Spring). All full-time students pay the same amount of UNT tuition and fees, regardless of how many hours you take. You will still have to pay statutory tuition, which is the portion of tuition set by the state and it is currently $50 per credit hour.

To get on the “Fast Track” to graduating sooner and saving money, set a goal to graduate in four years. Talk to your advisor about what courses to take. Then, at registration, enroll in at least 15 hours a semester. Now you’re on the “Fast Track” to graduating on time!

Students are encouraged to think of 15 hours as their minimum course load. This makes sense because after all, it generally takes 15 hours a semester to graduate in four years. Visit for more information!
