Establishing Texas Residency
Applicants and enrolled students at The University of Texas at Dallas are each classified as a resident or nonresident for tuition purposes. Resident classification for tuition is different from residency for voting or taxation purposes. The following applicants and students shall be classified as residents by UT Dallas:
International students eligible to establish legal domicile in Texas may also qualify for Texas residency status; see the Residency FAQ for details.
If you are classified as a nonresident and believe you meet the above residency requirements, you may petition for reclassification by completing the Residency Core Questions prior to the first day of class for the current term.
Applicants and students who are awarded a UT Dallas competitive scholarship and are classified as non-resident/out-of-state in their admission letter 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.
Due to the changing nature of residency requirements, please review any updates or changes at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Website.
