UNT gives you tuition options to save you time and money...

If you're a Texas resident, you can choose the Save and Soar tuition Plan to lock in your tuition rate and any applicable differential tuition for four years.
The traditional tuition plan is our standard option, which includes a set increase in tuition rate each year. Eligible Texas residents who do not enroll in the Save and Soar Tuition Plan will be automatically enrolled in this plan.
Oklahoma residents seeking a bachelor's degree at UNT can now attend for about half the cost of out-of-state tuition.
UNT offers the convenience and flexibility of paying for courses on an installment plan. You pay 10% of your tuition and fees by the payment deadline each semester, with three additional payments due the third of each month.*

* An installment plan is also available to pay for your on-campus housing. Residence hall payments can be broken into eight manageable monthly payments.
