Remaining Costs & Options

Your net price gives you a realistic indicator of what you could potentially pay out of pocket after your gift aid (grants/scholarships) is applied. You calculate this by subtracting your gift aid from your cost of attendance.

Once you have your net price, subtract any federal student loans that you will take to see your remaining costs, which you could then pay out of pocket or consider other options which may require additional research and actions.

Federal Work-Study: eligible students have the opportunity to earn college funds by working a part-time job on campus or in community service agencies. Students must apply for and secure a job to obtain funding.

Parent PLUS Loan: a credit-based loan parents can take out for undergraduate dependent students. Parents must submit a credit check and application at

Alternative Loans: educational loans that are available through private lending institutions. The loan terms, interest rates and fees will vary by lender.

Outside Scholarships: any scholarships offered through scholarship organizations, foundations and businesses outside of UTSA You must notify UTSA that you have received an outside scholarship by submitting an External Scholarship Form found on the Financial Aid forms

Graduate PLUS Loan: a credit-based loan for graduate students that requires submitting a credit check and completing an application at

Other Ways to Pay

If you still owe a remaining balance after financial aid has paid, you can opt to use the following options:

  1. Pay entire balance out of pocket with an E-Check or Credit Card
  2. Pay part of your balance with an Installment Plan which divides your remaining tuition and fees into three payments (only available during fall and spring)
  3. Postpone your balance to the end of the semester by completing a Tuition and Fee Loan
  4. Pay your balance with a Third Party Payment (military, Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan, employer, etc.)
