CBM00E - Doctoral Exception Report

The CBM00E Doctoral Exception Report includes students submitted for exception to the 75th Legislature's 99-hour limit on the number of doctoral semester credit hours per student that are eligible to generate formula funding (Texas Education Code, TEC 61.059).  The Coordinating Board may approve two types of partial exceptions to the limit: program exceptions for students in programs where the field of study requires a higher number of semester credit hours to maintain nationally competitive standards; and individual exceptions for students whose “program of research is likely to provide substantial benefit to medical or scientific advancement.” Students granted exceptions generate up to 130 hours of doctoral funding.

CBM00E is a biennial report and due March 15 of Even Years.
