Additional Tuition for Excessive Undergraduate Hours 

Texas Education Code § 54.014 specifies that resident undergraduate students who initially enrolled fall 1999 and later may be subject to a higher tuition rate for attempting excessive hours at any public institution of higher education while classified as a resident student for tuition purposes. Since fall 2007, UNT undergraduate students who are classified as Texas Residents and those who pay in statutory tuition rates are subject to an additional excessive hour tuition rate.

Students who enrolled initially in the fall 1999 semester or subsequent semesters cannot exceed more than 45 hours of the number of hours required for completion of the degree plan in which they are enrolled. Any hours beyond 45 are considered excessive and will result in additional tuition charges.

Students who enrolled initially in the fall 2006 semester or subsequent semesters cannot exceed more than 30 hours of the number of hours required for completion of the degree plan in which they are enrolled. Any hours beyond 30 are considered excessive and will result in additional tuition charges.

The rate for excessive undergraduate hours (effective Fall 2019) is $300.00 per credit hour.

How do I appeal the Excessive Hours charge?

Fill out the Excessive Hours Hardship Appeal eForm.  Once we have reviewed the appeal we will send an email regarding the decision. There are three options for appealing the excessive hours charge based on hardship:

  1. Disability/Illness:Attach the required Letter of Support requested and received through the Office of Disability Access to support your disability or illness. This option is only available if the student is the one with the disability or illness, not a family member.
  2. Pell Grant Eligible:  Pell Grant eligibility is based on financial need as determinded by a student's Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) score. In order to view the EFC score, students will need to submit a FAFSA for the current aid year. 
  3. Financial Hardship:  You are currently experiencing financial hardship or you are the caregiver of someone with a disability or illness, and have documentation.

The University will make a decision based on the information given and will inform you via email of the decision.

UNT encourages timely graduation for all students. Students are encouraged to seek assistance from their academic advisor to avoid enrolling in excessive hours.
