    The Texas Education Code authorizes the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to promulgate regulations governing residency status for tuition purposes in public institutions of higher education. These regulations are subject to change, and portions of the current regulations are reprinted below as a convenience to the student. The complete Rules and Regulations: Residence Status booklet prepared by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board can be reviewed in the Admissions Office.

    A student entering UTEP for the first time or after an absence of more than one year should carefully review these residency regulations to make sure the correct tuition is paid.
