Fast Facts about UAT Tuition

A superior, private education can also be surprisingly attainable when your student is dedicated to their journey. At UAT, students learn more efficiently in smaller classes with professors who know each student’s strengths and nurture their development. They often graduate earlier and earn their way sooner. Alumni are welcome to audit classes online or on campus for life free of charge. Your investment in an education at UAT is an investment in a lifetime of education.

As an institution, we work hard to ensure that a education represents a clearly affordable alternative when compared to many other private four-year colleges or, to the cost of out-of-state tuition at a public college. There is no in-state or out-of-state cost difference at UAT. Tuition is a flat rate. UAT offers students and families a tuition lock guarantee to ensure annual cost for tuition will not increase for students enrolled in consecutive semesters from their first year through graduation allowing students and families to better plan and budget for their education costs.

The UAT Tuition Guarantee

At UAT, our commitment to your family planning offers students and families a tuition lock guarantee to ensure the annual cost for tuition will not increase between the first year a student is enrolled at UAT and the student's senior year. We understand how much of a challenge the uncertainty of annual tuition increases can be for students and their families—it’s hard enough for technology students to become leading innovators in an area of study without adding the mystery of what your actual expenses will be from year to year. UAT students who enroll and make the commitment to UAT will have the commitment returned by the University with the UAT Tuition Guarantee.

Some costs cannot be guaranteed. Tuition accounts for approximately 80% of college costs for a residential student. At UAT, those charges will remain constant for students, beginning with the entering class of 2014. Most of the remaining costs are room and meal options. Students may see a change to these costs during their four years on campus.

Our commitment to the student and your family

We'll freeze your tuition at the rate you sign up under with our UAT Tuition Guarantee.

Costs are increasing nationally

In 2012, tuition at private colleges increased an average of 6%. Public universities increased an average of 11%. During the period from 1993 to 2003, the increase at private colleges was 79%. We understand students and their families are struggling to pay for a superior quality undergraduate education that makes you stand out from the pack. That's why UAT is taking the lead to guarantee your costs once you make the commitment to UAT.

How do I qualify for The UAT Tuition Guarantee?

As soon as students are accepted at UAT and make their deposit they are covered by the UAT Tuition Guarantee.

Does the UAT Tuition Guarantee cover my entire four years of Undergraduate study?

If a student takes a leave of absence from UAT for only one semester, the student can return to campus and continue to be locked into the same tuition determined in your initial enrollment year.

If a student takes more than a semester-long leave of absence, he or she will be required to enroll at the new, higher rate for tuition determined for the semester the student is re-enrolling. Most UAT students graduate within four years and this policy is designed as an additional effort to meet your family’s four-year degree completion goals. UAT student policies are created to ensure the students ability to soar within industry, drive innovation and provide the student the foundation for life long education as well as an essential way for families to control and predict the cost of an elite level technology education from a prestigious technology university.

UAT encourages students and families to measure the burden of unchecked increasing costs of other universities that do not provide the commitment to the student and guarantee to lock in their tuition rates for four years. This one policy alone could mean enough resources to earn a masters degree for the same costs as other universities charge to earn a bachelors.

UAT students graduate one year earlier on average through our Synchronic Learning model. That means one year less of tuition costs and one step closer to your first professional paycheck a year earlier. The combination of those two attributes from UAT can make an elite education much more affordable for your family. A superior education can be a deep investment for most families but that doesn't mean college costs have to be unpredictable.

In addition, after graduation UAT alumni have the unique opportunity to stay current in their industries and audit classes FOREVER. Alumni are responsible for any required resources and materials. Only classes on the current schedule with free spaces are available. College credits are not earned in audited classes.

UAT remains committed to financial aid and scholarships for the most promising and passionate technology student innovators

Financial aid is available to those who qualify. At UAT, like at all accredited institutions of higher education, students must apply for financial aid each year. Changes in family income, family size, and the number of family members in college are just a few of the drivers that affect the amount of aid students receive. Financial aid can be complex and daunting when you first start to look at your options. UAT’s financial aid staff will always work hard to simplify it for students and their families and help guide you through the path to a superior technology education that will pay dividends to you for a lifetime.
