Blind or Deaf Exemption

The Blind or Deaf Exemption was created to exempt eligible students from all tuition and fees, including fees for correspondence courses, and all student service fees except fees charged for room, board, books and clothing. This exemption does not cover tuition and fees for individual continuing education courses; however, it will cover a continuing education program that enables the student to earn a license or certificate. A deaf or blind person who is a Texas resident is entitled to exemption from the payment of tuition and all fees at any public institution of higher education if he or she presents a certification of blindness or deafness from the Texas Rehabilitation Commission, Texas Commission for the Blind or Texas Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. An eligible student should also possess a high school diploma or GED certificate. Eligible students must also be registered for Selective Service or be exempt from this requirement. In order for a student to receive funding, the student must supply the Admissions and Records Office with a copy of their blind or deaf certification. After eligible students have registered for their classes, they should notify the Financial Aid Office immediately if they wish to use their exemption for that semester.
