The estimated cost of the 18-month Master of Prosthetics-Orthotics Program, including tuition, fees, and books, is $17,500 for Texas residents (and students who qualify for the Academic Common Market) and $38,500 for non-Texas residents.
In most cases, to qualify for Texas resident tuition rates, you must have lived in Texas for 12 months. Residency is also established in part by demonstrating your intent to stay in Texas by obtaining a Texas driver’s license or registering to vote in Texas. The UT Southwestern Office of Admissions can provide additional information about applying for residency.
