Texas Residency

Under Texas state law, an applicant or enrolled student is classified either as Texas resident, a non-Texas resident, or a foreign student. This classification impacts your eligibility for resident tuition and financial aid.

An individual's residency classification is based on information from his or her application for admission. As a student, it is your responsibility to register under the proper residency classification. 

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has established rules that govern Texas residency for higher education in Texas. For detailed information about regulations relating to residency in the State of Texas, visit the College for All Texans Residency Information page.
