DALLAS – The UNT System Board of Regents unanimously approved the FY23 annual UNT System consolidated budget during the August meeting, which included no raises in tuition.
“We are thrilled to announce that for the seventh consecutive year, the UNT System will not raise tuition,” said Dr. Michael R. Williams, UNT System Chancellor. “During a time when inflation is at an all-time high, the entire UNT System remains committed to providing an education of great value that is accessible and affordable for all students.”
Chancellor Williams reiterated his commitment to judicious fiscal management, saying, “the UNT System will continue to demonstrate fiscal stewardship by identifying cost-savings to ensure no unnecessary financial burden is being passed on to our students and their families.”
The last time any UNT campus raised tuition was in 2016. Between May 2016 and May of this year, the price of milk has increased 33 percent and the cost of eggs has increased 70 percent, while the price of UNT’s tuition has stayed flat.
Chancellor Williams continued, “The UNT System is dedicated to transforming the value proposition of higher education and is laser-focused on our students and their families, their experience, learning, and lifetime success.”
