Texas Resident

Texas resident is defined as a U.S. citizen (or dependent of a U.S. citizen for the current and preceding year) who has resided continuously in Texas for at least 12 months immediately preceding registration.

In-District

An In-District Resident: A resident of the State of Texas who:

  1. has resided continuously in Texarkana College’s taxation district for a period of at least six months preceding registration and who was not claimed as a dependent for federal income tax purposes by the individual’s parent or guardian for the current tax year or for the preceding year in which the individual registers. A residence change from within the district to outside of the district during the first 12 class days of the fall or spring semester (first 4 class days of the summer sessions) will result in the student being charged the additional out-of-district tuition fees.
  2. is a dependent of a Texas resident (claimed as a dependent for federal income tax purposes by the individual’s parent or guardian at the time of registration and for the preceding tax year) whose parent or guardian has resided continuously in Texarkana College’s taxation district for a period of at least six months immediately preceding registration.

Out-of-District

An Out-of-District Resident: A resident of the State of Texas who:

  1. has not resided continuously in Texarkana College’s taxation district for a period of at least six months immediately preceding registration and is independent for income tax purposes for the current year and preceding tax year.
  2. is a dependent of a Texas resident (claimed as a dependent for federal income tax purposes by the individual’s parent or guardian at the time of registration and for the preceding tax year) whose parent or guardian has not resided continuously in Texarkana College’s taxation district for a period of at least six months immediately preceding registration.

 

 

Resident Alien

Resident Alien: An alien living in the United States who:

  1. is under a visa permitting permanent residence and has the same privilege of qualifying for Texas resident status for tuition purposes as do United States citizens. Under this status the Resident Alien card or appropriate documentation indicating that the student has filed an I-485 form with the Immigration and Naturalization Service must be submitted before the student may register. Students who fail to present the Resident Alien card or appropriate documentation during the registration process will be required to pay non-resident tuition. Resident aliens wishing to be classified as Texas residents must also verify that they have resided in the state at least 12 months prior to registration.

Non-Resident (Out-of-State)

Non-Resident is a non-resident of the State of Texas, but a citizen of the United States of America who:

  1. has not resided continuously in the State of Texas for a period of at least 12 months immediately preceding registration and is independent for income tax purposes for the current year and preceding tax year; or
  2. is a dependent (claimed as a dependent for federal income tax purposes by the individual’s parent or guardian at the time of registration and for the preceding tax year) whose parent or guardian has not resided continuously in the State of Texas for a period of at least 12 months preceding registration.

Ad Valorem

Ad Valorem: The Board of Trustees of Texarkana College authorizes the waiver of the difference in the rate of tuition for the out-of-district or non-resident and in-district student or his/her dependent(s) who owns property purchased by or before the time of enrollment which is subject to ad valorem taxation by the Texarkana College District. The individual, or his/her dependents, applying for such waiver shall verify property ownership by presentation of an ad valorem tax statement or receipt, issued by the tax office of the District; or by presentation of a deed, property closing statement, or other appropriate evidence of ownership of property which is subject to ad valorem taxation by the District. This must be done prior to registration.
