Tuition & Financial Aid

Utah State University is one of the most affordable schools in the nation and provides many options to help you invest in your education. Approximately 75% of all graduate students receive financial assistance each year.

Tuition and fees may vary by college and course enrollment so be sure to use the Tuition and Fees Estimator to understand your investment.

In addition to university-wide scholarships and fellowships, your department or college may have unique financial aid opportunities.

If you’re a grad student who needs to take language credits to enhance your degree, you can apply for Supplemental Language Tuition.

As a Utah State employee or relative of an employee, you may be eligible for reduced tuition.

Assistantships
To receive in-state tuition, you must complete a Utah residency application and meet the residency requirements:

  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
  • Be admitted to Utah State University.
  • Obtain a Utah driver’s license, voter registration and vehicle registration.
  • Live in Utah for 12 continuous months (with a 30-day maximum exception).
  • Be declared financially independent.

If you spend time outside Utah to complete a degree program requirement (e.g. an internship or research), the time spent outside Utah does not count against the requirement to live in Utah for 12 continuous months.

If you’re a resident in a western state, you can apply for a Non-resident Tuition Waiver.
