Tuition at the University of Utah is charged at different rates for residents versus non-residents. If you are admitted as a non-resident, we strongly recommend that you read the University’s Institutional Policy on residency reclassification which may be found here:


The MS in RT program at the University of Utah participates in the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). This allows students from the region's states pay up to 150 percent of resident tuition. We are limited in the number of students we can accept for this program. If you are from a qualifying state, please submit a brief statement to describe how you would benefit from this program.
