Determining Texas Residency

Texas residents are eligible to pay lower in-state tuition rates and to apply for state financial aid.

In general, students are considered Texas residents if they graduated from a Texas high school and lived in Texas for at least 36 months before graduating from that school and 12 months before enrolling in a university; or if they established permanent residency at least 12 months before enrolling in a university.

Find exceptions, further details and specific policies through the Office of Admissions.
