Tuition Exemption for Students who are Blind and Visually Impaired
Under Texas Education Code Section 54.205, students who are certified as blind and are a Texas resident are entitled to have tuition, required fees and the general property deposit exempted. Contact the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, Services for the Blind division (formerly Texas Commission for the Blind) for information about how to secure certification.
After obtaining the Certification, turn in a copy to the Special Billing office in MAI 4. You will then need to "confirm attendance" prior to each semester through your 'My Tuition Bill' website at: www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar, select View your bill, and confirm. A message in green stating "Your Registration is Complete", is your confirmation for that given semester.
