A third email will follow with class information for registration based on your response to (1) when you wish to start and how many classes you wish to take per semester (2) if you are using financial aid. Please contact our office when you know your plans and we will assist you with course identification, registration and payment instructions.

 

The current fees for Academic year 2018-2019: each 3-hour course will be $1,194. 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).
