Contact 1: Bud Grimes
MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees approved a 1.8 percent undergraduate tuition increase during its annual meeting June 22 at the UT Institute of Agriculture campus in Knoxville. The increase takes effect beginning with the 2017 fall semester at UT campuses in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Martin.
The 1.8 percent in-state tuition increase reflects the Higher Education Price Index, which is the rate used throughout the UT System. This rate is below the Tennessee Higher Education Commission’s 3 percent limitation.
UT Martin instate tuition and mandatory fees will now cost undergraduate students an additional $148 annually for students with fewer than 60 credit hours and an additional $140 annually for students with 60 or more credit hours. New tuition and fees will be $4,309 - $4,618 per semester or $8,618 - $9,236 for a full academic year. Full-time undergraduate enrollment is a minimum of 12 credit hours.
The “Soar in Four” tuition model, designed to speed progress toward degree completion, was approved for the University of Tennessee at Martin in June 2016. “Soar in Four” encourages students to take 15 hours per semester and complete their undergraduate degrees in four years. The 2017-18 academic year will be the second year of the tuition model.
Tuition and mandatory fees for instate graduate students will increase $83 per semester for a total of $5,031 per semester. Graduate students will pay a total of $10,062 per academic year starting this fall. Full-time graduate enrollment is nine hours per semester.
The new tuition schedule is available at utm.edu/tuition.
