Early High School Tuition Exemption

The early high school $1,000 tuition exemption was created by the Texas Legislature for Texas residents who have attended high school only in Texas and who have graduated from a public high school in no more than 36 consecutive months prior to September 1, 2005.  The exemption does not cover fees, board or housing costs. This exemption can be utilized for college-level and remedial classes as well as continuing education classes that receive state formula funding.  There is not a time limit for the use of the exemption. In order for a student to receive funding, the student's high school must send the appropriate documentation to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). The Coordinating Board will notify South Plains College of the student's eligibility. You may access an application at http://www.collegefortexans.com .  The contact person at THECB is Sheryl McGlory, who can be reached at (512) 427-6323 or via email at Shery.Mcglory@THECB.state.tx.us .  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.
