How do I notify the University of Texas at Austin that I have the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (TGTP)?
You may scan and email a copy of your student’s TGTP ID card to tuition@austin.utexas.edu or submit the card in person in MAI 4.  Be sure to include the student’s full name, UT EID, student’s classification (incoming freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate), and the semester you want to begin using their TGTP coverage.

What do I need to do after I register?
You must complete your registration after signing up for classes by taking one of two actions by 5:00 p.m. on the payment due date. Failure to do so will result in the cancelation of your registration.

  • If the TGTP covers your entire tuition bill, you must click the “Confirm Attendance” button on the View Bill option of My Tuition Bill to complete your registration. Failure to complete this simple task will result in your classes being canceled.

What is not covered by the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan?
The TGTP does not cover any fees that are not charged each semester to all students. Examples of these fees include the general property deposit, affiliated studies fee, or international student fees.

How will my tuition bill look with the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan applied?
The TGTP appears as a credit to your tuition, listed by the line item "Less third party billing."

Will the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan pay for my summer classes?
Yes, but you must contact our office to have your summer tuition bill adjusted for the TGTP. We do not automatically apply the TGTP to summer tuition bills.

My TGTP coverage is no longer showing up on my tuition bill.
This situation may occur if you studied abroad, didn't attend The University of Texas at Austin for a semester, or if your plan coverage has been exhausted. Please contact Student Accounts Receivable to inquire about adjusting your tuition bill. We can be contacted at (512) 475-7777 or tuition@austin.utexas.edu.

How many hours are left on my Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan?
For the answers to questions specifically related to your TGTP account, please contact the TGTP office directly by calling (800) 445-4723 and choosing option two.

How is my Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan drawn down?
Your TGTP fund is decreased according to the number of credit hours you take each semester, rather than by the dollar amount of your tuition bill.

What happens when I have scholarships in addition to the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan?
TGTP is applied directly to the tuition balance first. Scholarships are then applied to any remaining tuition or other university charges. Any remaining amount of scholarship funds are released to the student and can be used for other related expenses such as textbooks.

How many credit hours are reported under flat rate tuition?
Your TGTP account is expended based upon the number of credit hours you take. The University of Texas at Austin bills TGTP for the actual number of semester credit hours for which you are enrolled, even though the flat rate tuition charge is the same dollar amount for 12 or more credit hours.
