Residency Questionnaire - Changing Your Status to Texas Resident
The Office of the University Registrar will determine if students are a Texas Resident or Non-Texas Resident. To make this determination, students must answer a set of questions determined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) per the Texas Administrative Code Rule §21.25. This determination impacts a student's tuition rate.
The Residency Questions have been coded as an electronic form for students who have access to My Student Center. The below instructions show how to access and submit this form.
If you are not eligible to be coded as a Texas Resident, there are other ways to get the in-state tuition rate or assistance with tuition! Contact the Veteran Services & Financial Aid Office for assistance.

Reference How to Log into My Student Center for instructions on logging in.
