Out of State Tuition Waiver

vaultipodvaultipod Posts: 67Registered User Junior Member
Has anyone recieved an out of state tuition waiver or do you know anything about them? I have heard that when applying to texas there is a scholarship section. I was wondering if one of these scholarships is in state tuition. I am going to apply and try but i was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have a 31 act and I am ranked 1/307 in my graduating class. I am also involved in many ECs and I am just wondering if I have chances of receiving in state tuition.

    I know a few people from out of state with 31+ ACT that didn't get it. It's a good score, but at a university like UT, which has more national merit scholars than anywhere but Harvard, you've got to be really special to stand out. UT is generally pretty good at rewarding class ranks of "1" (at least in-state) so that might be the factor for you, however, your class size is on the smallish side, so I can't say for sure.

    That said, I know people who were able to establish in-state status by their second year, so don't let the out-of-state tuition scare you away.

    If you receive a scholarship for 1,000$+ a year, you get the waiver

    ^^^ I believe they've tightened up on the number of waivers they'll give, though. I think engineering has only 6 or 7 a year! I was disappointed when I read that.

    This thread tells how to get to the section of the Texas Administrative Code that addresses this topic

    Is that ALL colleges in South Carolina? What scholarship do you have to have?

    They don't say this explicitly, but you essentially have to get a near-perfect (if not perfect) SAT/ACT score to get an out-of-state tuition waiver these days. Of course, it's still possible!
