Appendix A. Residency Regulations

--continued

 

Teachers, Professors, and their Dependents

Statute:  Sec. 54.059 A teacher or professor of an institution of higher education, and the spouse and children of such a teacher or professor, are entitled to register in an institution of higher education by paying the tuition fee and other fees or charges required for Texas residents without regard to the length of time the teacher or professor has resided in Texas. A teacher or professor of an institution of higher education and the teacher's or professor's family are entitled to the benefit of this section if the teacher or professor is employed at least one-half time on a regular monthly salary basis by an institution of higher education.

Teachers and professors employed at least half time on a regular monthly salary basis (not hourly employees) by any Texas public institution of higher education, with an effective date of employment on or before the twelfth class day of a regular semester or the fourth class day of a summer term and an ending date of employment no earlier than the last official class day, may pay the same tuition as a resident of Texas for themselves, their spouses, and their dependent children, regardless of the length of residence in the state.

This provision applies to eligible teachers and professors and their dependents no matter which public institution they might attend. To be entitled to pay the resident tuition fees, such employees must submit a request form which has been certified by the employee, the employing department, and the student. This form should be submitted to the special billing section of the Accounting Office prior to each registration.

Students Employed as Teaching or Research Assistants

Statute:  Sec. 54.063 A teaching assistant or research assistant of any institution of higher education and the spouse and children of such a teaching assistant or research assistant are entitled to register in a state institution of higher education by paying the tuition fees and other fees or charges required for Texas residents under section 54.051 of this code, without regard to the length of time the assistant has resided in Texas, if the assistant is employed at least one-half time in a teaching or research assistant position which relates to the assistant's degree program under rules and regulations established by the employer institution.

Teaching assistants (including assistant instructors) or research assistants employed at least half time on a regular monthly salary basis (not hourly employees) by any publicly supported Texas institution of higher education in positions that relate to their degree programs, with an effective date of employment on or before the twelfth class day of a regular semester or the fourth class day of a summer term and an ending date of employment no earlier than the last official class day, may pay the same tuition as a resident of Texas for themselves, their spouses, and their dependent children, regardless of the length of residence in the state. The institution that employs the students will determine whether or not the students' jobs relate to their degree programs. Also, students may qualify for exemption from nonresident tuition for the entire summer session on the basis of eligible employment for one or more summer terms. This provision applies to eligible teaching assistants, research assistants, and their dependents no matter which Texas institution of higher education they may attend. To be entitled to pay the resident fees, students must submit a request form which has been certified by the student, the employing department, and the academic dean. This form should be submitted to the special billing section of the Accounting Office prior to each registration.

Appeals to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board

In the event two or more Texas public institutions of higher education determine a different residency status for members of the same family with identical evidence of residency currently enrolled at each institution, the individuals who were the subject of the residency determination may appeal the unfavorable decision to the commissioner of higher education. Before making an appeal to the commissioner, the student classified as a nonresident must exhaust all appeal processes available at the institutional level. A decision by the commissioner as to one family member's residency status will apply to each family member with identical evidence of residency at any institution of higher education he or she attends.
