Residency and In-State Tuition. Overview
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
Persons classified as residents for higher education purposes under Texas law may pay in-state tuition. Although Texas does not have any programs specifically for undocumented students, some undocumented persons are among those who are eligible for in-state tuition under current residency statutes. The residency statutes for higher education purposes have evolved somewhat over the past seven years. This brief overview presents answers to the following questions: (1) What is House Bill 1403 (passed by the 77th Texas Legislature in 2001)? (2) What were the implications of HB 1403? (3) Were there any legal problems with HB 1403? (4) What is Senate Bill 1528 (passed by the 79th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, in 2005)? (5) What are the implications of SB 1528? and (6) How many students has this affected?
