Eagle Express Tuition Plan

Effective Fall 2014

The Eagle Express Plan begins with the Fall 2014 semester and includes:

  • A fixed rate tuition plan which is available for 4 years (12 consecutive semesters that occur after the date of the student’s initial enrollment). One or more summer terms occurring in the same summer is considered a semester. This plan locks in total academic costs until a student graduates or 4 years from initial enrollment in the plan, whichever comes first.
  • An incentive for students who complete their degrees and meet eligibility requirements.

The Eagle Express plan is available to undergraduate students who are Texas residents for tuition purposes and who are:

  • New freshmen or transfer students
  • Continuing students enrolling Fall 2014

Eligible new freshmen and transfer students are allowed a one-time opportunity to opt in to the Eagle Express plan during the first term they enroll at UNT. Continuing students have a one-time opportunity to opt in to the plan upon enrollment for Fall 2014. No continuing students will be allowed to join the plan after Fall 2014.

For Fall 2014, if you feel you have a special circumstance that should allow you to change from the Traditional Tuition Plan to the Eagle Express Tuition Plan, you may complete the Eagle Express Appeal Form (Word or PDF).

The students’ total academic cost based on enrollment in 15 credits per term is approximately $10,674 per year until their final year. NOTE: Taking courses in the summer rather than the long semesters will result in a higher total cost.

Eagle Express Graduation Incentive

Students who enroll in Eagle Express and who complete their bachelor’s degree at UNT according to the following eligibility requirements qualify for an incentive in the form of a reduced tuition rate for the student’s final 15 hours. Eligibility for the graduation incentive is based upon how many hours a student completes at UNT and timeliness of graduation.

Continuing Students enrolled Fall 2014

Eligibility for the graduation incentive for continuing students enrolled Fall 2014 is based on the total hours completed at UNT prior to Fall 2014 plus the total number of hours transferred to UNT. Students with greater than 60 hours are not eligible for the graduation incentive and therefore should be advised that the Traditional Tuition plan is the best option for them.
