If this makes attending the college of your dreams seem daunting, remember, the "sticker price" of tuition does not always mean much if you plan to use financial aid to help pay for college.

Housing and campus dining at UT is $4,084 a year. This covers the cost of living in dorms or other on-campus housing, and a dining plan that enables you to eat all or some of your meals the UT's on-campus cafeterias and dining halls. Students who do not live on-campus but would like to be able to eat in the campus dining can pay for a meal plan. The cost of a mean plan, or board-only, is $4,084.
Meal-plan costs can depend on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.
The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
The majority of colleges also have fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
There may be optional fees associated with participating in special activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have ways so that those with financial need to get help covering these fees.
The total cost of transportation in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or will you need to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your estimated cost of transportation. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
Where are a college is located can also have a big effect on the amount you'll have to spend just to get around. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in an urban area can be expensive, but cities may offer more buses, trains and affordable flights to actually get to school. The Utah Tech University campus is in a small town setting in Utah.
When creating a budget for college, be sure to take into account personal expenses, like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.

|Most Common Loans for UT Students|
Most students take out institutional or government loans, because they tend to have lower interest rates and more flexible repayment options than private loans. Loans from the federal government can be subsidized or unsubsidized. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest during school, while unsubsidized loans begin accruing interest at the time the loan is issued. If students do no qualify for enough federal loans to cover the cost of tuition, some take out private loans. Parents can also take out ParentPLUS loans, which are government loans for parents who are helping their children pay for college.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) helps colleges determine how much financial need students and their familes have, so they can offer a financial aid package that meets, or come close to meeting, their need. For more information on UT financial aid, keep reading, or visit their financial aid website.
Some students may receive grants and scholarships to help pay for college. Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be paid back.
In 2022, UT awarded 2,515 need-based scholarships to students, giving away total of $13.7 million to help students with financial need cover the cost of school. An additional $31.66 million in merit-based scholarship money was awarded to students without demonstrated financial need.
The net price of college is the actual cost of attending a school for one year. Net cost is calculated by subtracting any scholarships, grants or other aid that does not need to be paid back from the total cost. Student loans are not part of the calculation, because they need to be repaid.
Now that we have a sense of the total estimated costs for UT students, we can subtract the average financial aid package to find the estimated net cost. Net cost can vary depending on a students’ need and the financial aid award received.
When considering whether a school fits your budget, it is important to consider the estimated net cost, not just the sticker price of tuition. Often, schools with the highest tuition also offer the most generous aid packages, so estimate your net cost before eliminating a school because it does fit your budget.
The average amount of financial aid received by a full-time first year student with demonstrated need at UT was $1,963 in 2022. By substracting the average financial aid package from the estimated costs, we get a number that may make the cost of UT seem more manageable.
