STATE PROGRAMS: SCHOLARSHIPS & EXEMPTIONS

The majority of the State Programs are available through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. For additional and most current information visit the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board website at www.collegeforalltexans.com and type the name of the program in the "Search Box." State Programs, some listed here, are based on availability of funds.

Due to limited funding in the program and the institution's unfortunate inability to fund all eligible students, UTB does not exercise its authority to make professional judgment calls for hardship requests for students who do not meet the basic program eligibility requirements.
