Quest Subscriptions

High Schools

UT Austin’s Quest Learning & Assessment tool is used by hundreds of educational institutions around the country. In an effort to recapture the costs associated with supporting outside institutions, we charge a nominal fee. Below is a summary of the current annual high school subscription fees:

For high school institutions, this fee is the same regardless of the number of classes or students in your institution using Quest. If your institution is new to Quest, we will offer you 120 days to evaluate Quest before payment of the institutional subscription becomes necessary. You can check your institution's subscription status on your My Profile page. If your institution is brand new to Quest, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

After you have confirmed your institution code, you can place your subscription or renew an existing subscription online, via UT’s secure purchasing tool. Each subscription lasts one year. How to subscribe.
