Senate Bill 1528
(Formerly House Bill 1403)
Certain unauthorized immigrants are eligible to enroll in Texas public colleges and pay in-state tuition. In 2001, the Texas Legislature passed a bill that states that these students may be eligible for state grants. Eligible students MUST meet certain criteria provided in the legislation to be considered for Senate Bill 1528 status.
Students who are not U.S. citizens or do not have an alien registration number, and who have been classified as a Texas resident can apply for state financial aid by completing the Texas Application for State Financial Aid. The application is available at www.uh.edu/finaid/forms.
