Tuition for Texans
  • If you’re a service member who selected Texas as "Home of Record" upon entering the service, and officially changed your permanent residence to another state by submitting a form to the military, you’re considered a Texan for tuition-paying purposes.
  • If you continue to be a Texas resident, you are eligible to pay the resident tuition rate at any public institution of higher education in Texas. This is true if you’re taking traditional classes while living in Texas, or stationed out of state or out of the country while taking classes via distance education.
  • If you meet the conditions above, your spouse and dependent children are also Texas residents and eligible to pay the resident tuition rate at any public college or university in Texas—unless they have established or maintained a separate residence from you.

Documents you can use to prove Texas residence include:

  • Papers from the military indicating Texas was your "Home of Record" at time of entry into service; and
  • Leave and earnings statement showing Texas is still your permanent address with the military.
