$1,000 Tuition Rebate for Certain Undergraduates is available to provide a financial incentive for students to complete their bachelor’s degree with as few courses outside the degree plan as possible. Minimizing the number of courses taken by students result in financial savings to students, parents and the state. Additional information is available at

Who can apply? Individuals who:

  • Took their first college course in fall 1997 or later;
  • Are Texas residents;
  • Have taken all coursework at Texas’ public institutions of higher education; and
  • Have been entitled to pay in-state tuition at all times while pursuing their degrees.

Key Eligibility Requirements

Students qualify for the $1,000 rebate if they have attempted no more than three semester credit hours in excess of the minimum number of hours required for their degree. For example, a student who completes a bachelor’s degree that requires 120 credit hours in 123 hours or less may qualify for this rebate.

What could disqualify an individual?

Attempted hours include every hour for which the student has registered, as of the official census date, in every semester including: developmental courses, repeated courses and courses from which the student withdraws. If a student has dropped more than one course after the official census date, s/he may not qualify for the rebate. All credit earned by examination was counted as well. However, because of a recent change in the law, the first nine hours of credit earned by examination (credit earned on the basis of AP courses, CLEP or credit granted for high SAT or ACT scores) does not count as hours attempted. Dual credit courses–courses taken in high school for both high school and college credit–continue to count as hours attempted.

Where may the awards be used?

Applies only to public universities in the state of Texas.

How can I apply?

Students must apply for the tuition rebate prior to receiving their bachelor’s degrees, using forms provided by their college or university. Contact the Financial Aid Office for additional information.
