Refunds for Students Called into Active Duty

If you’re a reservist or member of the National Guard called into duty after the start of a semester as a result of U.S. military demands, you have three options about what to do with the tuition and fees you’ve paid to attend a public college or university in Texas. According to state statutes and Coordinating Board rules, you can choose to have your college or university:

  • Refund the tuition and fees you've paid for the semester;
  • Grant you (if you’re eligible under the institution's guidelines) an incomplete grade in all courses by designating "withdrawn-military" on your transcript; or
  • As determined by the instructor, assign an appropriate final grade or credit to you, if you have satisfactorily completed a substantial amount of coursework and demonstrated sufficient mastery of the material.

Please note: There are no provisions for refunds for active duty service members who are deployed as a result of military orders or for individuals who chose to enter into the service. The provisions listed above apply only to individuals called into active military service.
