Tuition Rebate for Undergraduates

An undergraduate may be eligible for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000 at graduation if they have attempted no more than three semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the degree.

Students desiring to qualify for a tuition rebate are solely responsible for enrolling only in courses that will qualify them for the rebate.

A student will be eligible for a partial rebate of their undergraduate tuition if ALL the following criteria are met:

  1. The student must not have enrolled at any institution of higher education before the Fall 1997 semester.
  2. At the time s/he earns a first undergraduate degree, the student must have attempted1 no more than three semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the degree.

    Hours attempted1 include:
    • All courses the student has undertaken, such as transfer credit2, credit earned by examination3, study abroad courses4, courses the student dropped or from which the student withdrew after the date the official enrollment count was taken,
    • Optional internship and cooperative education courses,
    • Courses the student failed,
    • Courses the student repeated.
    • If the student has earned credit-by-exam for more than nine hours of coursework, the hours in excess of nine are also counted as hours attempted.
  3. The student must have been a Texas resident and must have been eligible to pay resident tuition at all times while pursuing the degree.
  4. For students who enroll for the first time in the fall 2005 or later, a student must graduate within four calendar years for a four-year degree.

Notes:

1 Courses dropped for reasons that are determined by the institution to be totally beyond the control of the student shall not be counted.

2 Transfer work that was taken during high school (dual credit) shall not be counted.

3 The first nine (9) hours earned by examination (that is, credit earned on the basis of AP courses, CLEP or credit granted for high SAT or ACT scores) shall not be counted.

4 The first nine (9) hours earned through study abroad shall not be counted.
