You may be eligible for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000 if, at graduation, 1) you earned your degree within four years, 2) you are (and have been) a Texas resident, 3) you attempted no more than three semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the degree, and 4) you paid tuition* out-of-pocket. There are many stipulations to this rule, so check with your advisor about the requirements and regulations that govern this rebate. For more information about the rules and requirements, visit the Tuition Rebate page.
If you believe you qualify for this tuition rebate, please download the tuition rebate application, complete it, sign it (signature may be typed if submitting by email), and drop it off at the Student Advising Office (DMC 2.600), or email it using your official utexas email address to the Student Advising Office (email@example.com) by the deadline, which is the official graduation date for the semester in which you will graduate. Processing of your tuition rebate application cannot begin until your degree has been conferred by the University and may take up to 2.5 months to complete.
*If you received tuition waivers or exemptions and did not pay tuition out-of-pocket, this will make you ineligible for the tuition rebate. Your academic advisor will not know whether you paid tuition or received waivers/exemptions. If you have questions regarding your tuition rebate eligibility related to tuition waivers or exemptions, you should contact the Tuition Billing Department/Student Accounts Receivable Office at (512) 475-7771.
