Petition for Resident Tuition

All academic students are classified as a non-resident until a Residency Questionnaire is completed and returned to the Registrar's Office for a decision. If you are claiming Texas as your state of residence, click here to complete the Residency Questionnaire Form.

A non-resident who believes he is eligible to pay Texas tuition rates due to employment, scholarship, military assignment, academic common market, or economic development must complete a "Petition for Determination of Resident Tuition" and submit it to the Registrar's Office each term. If the Registrar's Office is able to verify your Graduate Research Assistant employment prior to registration, a waiver will be entered into UTLINK and you will not need to complete a petition. However, after checking your residence status on UTLINK, you do not see a student waiver for this term, you must complete a petition and have Section II completed by one of the offices listed below.

Forms are available in the Registrar's Office, 7000 Fannin, Suite 2250 or down load the form at this link: Petition for Residency. Petitions will NOT be processed the same day they are received by these offices- allow sufficient time for their completion.

GSBS: Business Office, HMC 300 or MDA Office of Education, HMB 16.151
SPH: Administrative Services, RAS W130
All others: Human Resources, UCT 1.150s

For additional information regarding classification as a Texas resident please visit these resources: College For Texans - Residency Information and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. [Top of Page]
