All of the colleges and departments at The University of Texas at Austin (UT), not just the Cockrell School of Engineering (CSE) and Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CAEE), offer an outstanding education at a reasonable cost. We are one of the nation’s best, and we are also one of its best values. We want you to be able to attend, and we recognize your need for good information about costs and assistance, as we share your legitimate concern about funding your education.
Your total cost of attending (COA) UT as an undergraduate for one year—including such things as tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation, and other expenses—will vary on a number of factors (such as Texas residency and whether you live on or off campus). For current information regarding the COA at UT see The Office of Admissions.
Similarly, the dollar value of scholarships and financial aid available to you will also vary on a number of factors (such as your academic record and financial need). Prospective and current undergraduate students in both Civil and Architectural Engineering may apply for University, School of Engineering, and Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Departmental scholarships. In the CSE scholarships have ranged from $1,000 to $9,000. In CAEE, scholarships have ranged from $200 to $2,000. Scholarship criteria and award amounts vary each year. For additional information see the CSE scholarships page. You may also be interested in the University Scholarships page. Financial aid for undergraduate students (grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships) is available through the University’s Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS), where you can find deadlines for and links to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
