UTHSC proposes increasing the maintenance fee (tuition) by 2.9%, which ranges from $235 to $374 for its undergraduate programs as outlined in the table above. There are no increases to mandatory fees. These increases are needed to cover growth in the costs of providing learning infrastructure and to maintain the quality and effectiveness of these programs in the future.
The funds will primarily be used to increase student support and unrestricted scholarships as well as to support cost increases at the institution due to unprecedented inflationary pressures.
UTHSC makes every reasonable effort to mitigate the effect of tuition and fee increases on students. This includes managing overall operating costs and limiting other fees and charges where possible. In our ongoing efforts to keep tuition and fees low and assure access and affordability, UTHSC has had very limited tuition increases over the past several years. In addition to investing directly in additional unrestricted scholarships, UTHSC plans to leverage this investment to increase fundraising efforts for scholarships to provide more financial aid to students in the future.
