Money-saving Eagle Express Tuition Plan open for enrollment

Monday, August 4, 2014 - 08:22

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Interested in saving some money on college? The University of North Texas' innovative Eagle Express Tuition Plan is now available for sign-up. The plan is open to all students for fall 2014, which begins August 25.

The plan offers students the option to lock in their total academic costs for four years, saving up to $3,000 in their last 15 credit hours when they graduate in four years. Additionally, students that graduate on time also will quality for the state's $1,000 tuition rebate, providing an opportunity for students to save up to $4,000 total for graduating on schedule.

The Eagle Express Tuition Plan is available to all new freshmen and transfer students starting fall 2014. Current students have a one-time opportunity to opt-in to the plan, but will not be allowed to join the plan after fall 2014. This year's deadline for incoming freshmen, transfer students and current students is 5 p.m. Aug. 14 (Thursday). If a student chooses to participate in the Eagle Express plan and does not graduate on time, they will end up paying the same amount as they would have under the traditional plan despite losing the graduation bonus.

Students seeking to participate in the plan must meet Texas residency requirements and be seeking a bachelor's degree. If a student does not meet the Texas residency requirements, they will automatically be enrolled in the traditional tuition plan.
