Tuition & Fees

Residents of the state of Tennessee pay in-state maintenance fees. 

Academic Common Market

An agreement among southern states for sharing graduate programs allows legal residents of some states to enroll in certain programs at UT on an in-state tuition basis. Through the Academic Common Market, the M.S. program is available to residents of the states of Arkansas, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia. For more information, contact Norma Harrington at (865)974–3251.

Residents of states outside of the Academic Common Market will be assessed out-of-state tuition.

Notes:
  • Distance education students do not pay Program & Services, Facilities, or Transportation fees unless they are enrolled in an on campus course.
  • Students are required to enroll according to their status in SIS. If an online course has two sections, campus students must register for the section designated for campus and distance education students must register for the section designated for DE. Campus students enrolled part-time for a given semester may be charged additional fees based on the number of hours enrolled. 
  • Fees for part-time students are pro-rated and calculated based on the number of credit hours enrolled.
