Waivers for Nonresidents to Pay Resident Tuition

The state of Texas provides several tuition waivers for nonresidents serving in the U.S military to pay in-state tuition rates while residing in Texas. Waivers are applicable to servicemembers in the U.S. Armed Forces whose permanent change of duty station is in Texas, and their spouse and dependent children. There are other waivers for military retirees and separated military, and students eligible for Post 9/11 VA education benefits. The state also provides waivers for the spouse and children of servicemembers who died while on active duty and waivers applicable to the spouse and children of nonresidents who are no longer assigned to duty in Texas.

The nonresident tuition waivers described in this section apply to students enrolled in classroom courses taught in Texas and eligible students in Texas enrolled in distance learning courses offered form the Central Campus in Killen, TX. Students attending classes at CTC sites outside Texas pay the contract tuition rate for their site. Distance learners outside Texas enrolled in online classes offered from the Central Campus pay the tuition rate based on their residency status determined at the time of admission or readmission to CTC.
