Undergraduate Funding Limit

Undergraduate Funding Limit Rule

The Texas Education Code § 54.014 passed legislation on June 18, 2005 that allows an institution of higher education to charge a resident undergraduate student tuition at a higher rate than the rate charged to other resident undergraduate students, not to exceed the rate charged to nonresident undergraduate students, for students that have exceeded a certain number of semester credit hours of funded college work and who have not earned an undergraduate degree.

  • Students who are a Texas resident and were enrolled in any Texas public institution BEFORE Fall 1999 are EXEMPT from this rule.
  • Students who were enrolled in any Texas public institution between Fall 1999 and Summer 2006 can not attempt 45 credit hours beyond the hours required to complete their degree.
  • Students who were enrolled in any Texas public institution Fall 2006 and thereafter can not attempt 30 credit hours beyond the hours required to complete their degree.
