Tuition Rebate for Qualified Students

A qualified student is eligible to apply for a rebate of a portion of the undergraduate tuition the student has paid, in accordance with Section 54.0065 of the Texas Education Code. The 1997 Texas Legislature approved a tuition rebate plan for students receiving their first baccalaureate degree. For a student to be eligible for a rebate of a portion of the undergraduate tuition the student has paid: they must be Texas residents having enrolled for the first time in an institution of higher education in the fall of 1997 or later; attempted all work at a Texas public institution of higher education and been entitled to pay resident tuition at all times while pursuing the degree and must not have attempted more than three hours in excess of the minimum required for the degree, including transfer credits and course credit earned exclusively by examination. Only the number of semester credit hours earned exclusively by examination in excess of nine semester credit hours is treated as hours attempted

Rebate Application forms are available at the Office of the Registrar, ADM 221. Eligible students must apply for this rebate prior to graduation.
