Exemptions of Veterans

Men and women who are citizens of Texas, who were residents of Texas at the time of induction, and who served in the armed forces and were honorably discharges (except certain limitations for age, personal requests, and period of service) and who are not eligible for educational benefits provided for veterans by the U.S. Government, are exempted from certain required fees, but not for deposits, course fees, and certain fees fixed for all students. To obtain this exemption status a photostatic or certified copy of the discharge papers and a notarized statement by the veteran that all benefits have expired must be presented to the Business Office at registration.

State law requires that students who receive exemption and/or waivers to tuition and fee charges make due progress toward the completion of a degree or certificate in order to continue receiving benefits. At Texarkana College, students receiving exemptions and/or waivers to tuition and fee charges must maintain all requirements listed in the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress (FA-SAP). These requirements can be found at http://www.texarkanacollege.edu/financial-aid/veterans/academic-progress/.
