Requirements for continued funding of individual scholarships are outlined in the scholarship offer letters, or read more about the requirements and the scholarship appeal process. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in a loss of scholarship funding and the non-resident tuition waiver that is associated with the scholarship (if applicable).
Students nearing completion of their degree program or are otherwise unable to register for the minimum number of graduate credit hours required should complete the Course Load Exception Request Form prior to the first class day of the semester.
Students with other extenuating circumstances that prohibit them from meeting all other stated requirements may file an appeal with the graduate school.
Applicants and students who are awarded a Toulouse Graduate School competitive scholarship and are classified as non-resident/out-of-state may receive in conjunction with the scholarship a "competitive scholarship waiver." This waiver allows a student to pay tuition at the resident/in-state rate. The state of Texas strictly limits how many competitive scholarship waivers may be offered, and the awarding of such waivers is at the sole discretion of the University. Not all of the scholarships we offer will qualify, please read the information for each award carefully.
Non-Texas residents residing outside of Texas and only enrolled in online courses should contact their major department for specifics regarding tuition charges.
After residing in the state for 12 consecutive months, a student may apply for reclassification as a resident for tuition purposes provided unequivocal proof of establishment of domicile in Texas. For more information on reclassification, as well as documentation required, please visit the Registrar's Office website.
