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.
If you believe you qualify for this tuition rebate, download the tuition rebate application form (you may also pick one up in BMC 2.600), complete it, and submit it to the Student Advising Office by the deadline, which is the official graduation date for the semester in which you will graduate.
*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.
