Tuition for Non-Texans in the Military

If you did not select Texas as your "Home of Record" when you entered the service, and you have not taken steps to change your permanent residence with the military to Texas, you are classified as a Non-Texan for tuition-paying purposes.

As a Non-Texan service member, you, your spouse and your dependent children must pay the non-resident tuition rate unless you qualify for a waiver under Texas statutes. For more information about waiver programs, select the program category that best applies to you.

Non-Texan Tuition Waivers:

Please note: To apply for a waiver program, you'll need documents from the military showing that you meet the requirements of the program for which you're applying.
