For students enrolled less than half-time (less than 5 hours for graduate students and less than 6 hours for undergraduate students), only tuition/fees and books/supplies will be included in the cost of attendance.

Monthly Cost

Multiply your monthly cost by the number of months in your enrollment period.  There are allowances for child care or dependent care costs if applicable.

Dependent Care

For additional dependents, students may increase cost by $285 per month for each dependent.  Families who are separated from their children may, with documentation, be funded for three trips per twelve-month period at a cost not to exceed $250 per trip.

Child Care

For a single parent or working spouse family, child care may be funded at the actual cost, not to exceed $420/month for 1 child, $798/month for 2 children, and $1176/month for 3 or more children.  An additional $17 per week will be allowed for infant care.


An estimated amount for tuition/fees will be included. This estimate is based on full-time enrollment (exceptions: tuition/fees for students in the MSN and OT-D programs will be based on half-time enrollment). If students are enrolled less than full-time and are receiving federal financial aid, and the tuition/fee allowance in the cost of attendance is greater than the actual costs, the tuition/fee allowance will be reduced to actual cost (exceptions: since students in the MSN and OT-D programs are budgeted based on half-time enrollment, their tuition/fees will only be adjusted if they are enrolled less than half-time). If a student withdraws from UTMB during a term, the tuition/fees will be adjusted to reflect actual cost.

Books and Supplies

An estimated amount for books and supplies will be included.  This estimate is based on actual costs for required books.  This amount will be calculated for the entire enrollment period.

Students who repeat any given year will only be allowed $100 per semester for supplies during the repeated term.

Unusual Costs

A clothing allowance of $750 per year has been added to personal expenses for all students required to be in a clinical setting.
Externship/Preceptorship funding of $2000 will be allowed in the senior year of medical school.
Externship/Preceptorship funding of $1000 will be allowed in the clinical year for SOHP students.
USMLE expenses have been included in the books/supplies allowance for year 2, 3 and 4 medical students. (year 2=$600; year 3=$1275; year 4=$600).

Computer Allowance

Students may have an aggregate allowance of $3,000 for computer purchase/upgrade.  This may be used one time; or multiple times over more than one year not to exceed the total amount of $3,000.


Each student must maintain health while a student at UTMB. This requirement can be met through your current private health insurance, or the UT System endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan through Blue Cross Blue Shield administered by Academic Health Plans.
