The current fees for Academic year 2017-2018: each 3-hour course will be $1065. UTM offers a payment plan to assist those students who need to extend their time for payment (Fall and Spring terms only). The four-payment plan requires the first one-fourth of deferrable fees after aid has been applied, plus a $30 service charge and all previous balances by the fee payment deadline.
If you would like to apply for financial aid you will need to fill out a FAFSA form. Here are the links to our Financial Aid web page, the link for creating a PIN that you will need before trying to complete the FAFSA and then a link itself to the FAFSA. To meet Federal guidelines and be eligible for financial aid, you are required to take 2 courses per semester (6 hours).
If you have additional questions regarding the FAFSA and need further assistance with financial aid, please email Alivia Joes, firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to working with you.
