Residency

^ TOP

For tuition purposes, students enrolling in Amarillo College will be classified as follows: (1) resident students, (2) nonresidents of Amarillo Junior College District [students who live in Texas but not in the Amarillo Junior College district; a Texas resident must reside within the Amarillo Junior College District for a period of six months to be classified as a resident student], (3) nonresidents of Texas and (4) foreign students. Exceptions are listed later in this section.

General Rules

^ TOP

Minors - individuals 17 years of age or younger - and Dependents

Statute: Section 54.052(a)(3) “Dependent” means an individual who is claimed as a dependent for federal income tax purposes by the individual’s parent or guardian at the time of registration and for the tax year preceding the year in which the individual registers.

Section 54.052(c) An individual who is 17 years of age or under, or is a dependent and who is living away from his or her family, and whose family resides in another state or has not resided in Texas for the 12- month period immediately preceding the date of registration, shall be classified as a nonresident student.

Section 54.052(d) An individual who is 18 years of age or under or is a dependent and whose family has not resided in Texas for the 12-month period immediately preceding the date of registration shall be classified as a nonresident student, regardless of whether he or she has become the legal ward of residents of Texas or has been adopted by residents of Texas while he or she is attending an educational institution in Texas, or within a 12-month period before his or her attendance, or under circumstances indicating that the guardianship or adoption was for the purpose of obtaining status as a resident student.

Section 54.055 An individual who is 17 years of age or under or is a dependent and whose parents were formerly residents of Texas is entitled to pay the resident tuition fee following the parents’ change of legal residence to another state, as long as the individual remains continuously enrolled in a regular session in a state-supported institution of higher education.

Individuals over 18

Statute: Section 54.052(e) An individual who is 18 years of age or over who has come from outside Texas and who is gainfully employed in Texas for a 12-month period immediately preceding registration in an educational institution shall be classified as a resident student as long as he or she continues to maintain a legal residence in Texas.

Section 54.052(f) An individual who is 18 years of age or over who resides out of the state or who has come from outside Texas and who registers in an educational institution before having resided in Texas for a 12-month period shall be classified as a nonresident student.

Section 54.054 A nonresident student classification is presumed to be correct as long as the residence of the individual in the state is primarily for the purpose of attending an educational institution. After residing in Texas for at least 12 months with sufficient documentation of intent to establishment of a domicile in Texas, a nonresident student may be reclassified as a resident student as provided in the rules and regulations adopted by the Higher Education Coordinating Board. Any individual reclassified as a resident student is entitled to pay the tuition fee for a resident of Texas at any subsequent registration as long as he or she continues to maintain his or her legal residence in Texas.

Married Students

Statute: Section 54.056 A student who is a resident of Texas who marries a nonresident is entitled to pay the resident tuition fee as long as the student does not adopt the legal residence of the spouse in another state.

Foreign Students

Statute: Section 54.057 An alien who is living in this country under a visa permitting permanent residence or who has filed with the proper Federal immigration authorities a declaration of intention to become a citizen has the same privilege of qualifying for resident status for fee purposes under this Act as has a citizen of the United States.

Aliens living in the United States under a visa permitting permanent residence and those permitted by Congress to adopt the United States as their domicile while they are in this country have the same privilege of qualifying for Texas resident status for tuition purposes as do citizens of the United States.

(Note: Only a permanent resident may file with the Federal immigration authorities a declaration of intention to become a citizen.)

Generally, individuals who obtain permanent resident status while in Texas must wait a minimum of 12 months from the date of issue to request resident status for tuition purposes. At that time, they must provide conclusive evidence to indicate that they are in this state to live and reside permanently.

Tuition for students who are citizens of any country other than the United States of America is the same as the tuition required of other nonresident students, unless eligible under SB1528.

Exceptions

^ TOP

Military Personnel and Veterans

Statute: Section 54.058 Military personnel are classified as provided by this section in the following manner. A person who is an officer, enlisted person, selectee or draftee of the Army, Army Reserve, Army National Guard, Air National Guard, Air Force, Air Force Reserve, Navy, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps, Marine Corps Reserve, Coast Guard, or Coast Guard Reserve of the United States, who is assigned to duty in Texas and the spouse and children of such an officer, enlisted person, selectee or draftee are entitled to register in a state institution of higher education by paying the tuition fee and other fees or charges required of Texas residents, without regard to the length of time the officer, enlisted person, selectee, or draftee has been assigned to duty or resided in the state. It is the intent of the legislature that only those members of the Army or Air National Guard, or other reserve forces mentioned above be exempted from the nonresident tuition fee and other fees and charges only when they become members of the Texas units of the military organizations mentioned above.

Junior College Tuition Waivers for Ad Va lorem Tax Payers

Statute: Section 130.003(b)(4)…the governing board of a public junior college district may waive the difference in the rate of tuition for nonresident and resident students for a person, and his or her dependents, who owns property which is subject to ad valorem taxation by the junior college district.

Texas residents (or their dependents) who move into the Amarillo Junior College District and who own property which is subject to ad valorem taxation by Amarillo Junior College District shall be eligible to enroll at Amarillo College at the tuition rate for resident students.

Those students who think they qualify under the above listed exception, and who can provide conclusive evidence supporting the exception, should contact the Assistance Center in person.

Waiver of Non-Resident Tuition

Students from counties of New Mexico that are adjacent to Texas are eligible to enroll at Amarillo College and pay the non-resident tuition rate. If a dependent student’s family or an independent student from a bordering state moves to Texas after the student has received a waiver of nonresident tuition, the student is eligible for a continued waiver for the 12-month period after the relocation to Texas. After that time, however, the student shall be reclassified as a nonresident unless he or she applies for reclassification and proves he or she has become a resident.

Those students who think they qualify under the above listed exception, and who can provide conclusive evidence supporting the exception, should contact the Assistance Center in person.

Responsibilities

^ TOP

Statute: Section 54.0521 Oath of Residency. Before an individual may register at an institution of higher education paying tuition at the rate provided for residents, the individual must affirm under oath, to the appropriate official at the institution, that the individual is entitled to be classified as a resident for purposes of tuition.

Changes of residency status-it is the student’s responsibility to notify the institution of any change in circumstances that would result in a change of residency status. This must be done in person, in writing, at any College Service Center. Mailing address changes do not constitute a change of address for residency purposes.

If the institution later determines that the individual was not entitled to be classified as a resident at the time of the individual’s registration, the individual shall, not later than 30 days after the date the individual is notified of the determination, pay to the institution the amount the individual should have paid as a nonresident.

If the individual fails to make a timely payment as required by this section, the individual is not entitled to receive a transcript or to receive credit for courses taken during the time the individual was falsely registered as a resident student. Substantiating documentation will be required by Amarillo College to affirm Texas residency.

Payment Information

^ TOP

Students will not be admitted to classes or labs until they have paid their tuition and fees in full. Payment may be made in cash, by check, by money order, or by credit card (VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover). Students paying by check are warned to exercise due care, however, as all checks are accepted subject to final payment by the bank. A check returned by the bank because of a stop payment order or insufficient funds does not cancel a student’s registration. If a check given for tuition and fees at registration time is returned by the bank, the student will be charged a service fee.

Student Alternative Payment Plan

The Payment Plan allows students who are enrolled in full semester-length courses to pay for tuition and fees in installments. The first installment is one-half of the tuition and fees total, plus an administration fee (nonrefundable) due at registration; the second installment of one-fourth of the total is due before the sixth class week; and the final installment of one-fourth is due before the eleventh class week. Students who elect to use the Plan must complete and sign a promissory note (plan agreement). Students wishing to sign up for the Payment Plan must be 18 years of age.

Failure to make timely payments by the due dates will result in the assessment of a delinquent fee. A student who fails to make payment in full, including incidental fees, by the due dates may be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made. A student who fails to make payment prior to the end of the semester may be denied credit for the work completed that semester. Refunds due as a result of withdrawal or schedule changes will be applied to the outstanding balance due of the note. Fifty percent payment of tuition and fees must be maintained for any scheduled changes. The Plan is not available for mini-term sessions.

Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver Policy

A Senior Citizen is defined as “any person 65 years of age or older.” Tuition will be waived on eligible courses on a SPACE AVAILABLE basis; however, the class must reach its minimum paying enrollment, but not its maximum, for the policy to apply. Proof of age and photo identification are required, and the student must pay all course/lab fees.

Continuing Education Courses: A Senior Citizen must complete the “Continuing Education Registration Form.” Continuing education courses that do not meet the criteria for State funding must be self-supporting and are not eligible for the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver. Ineligible courses include all Leisure Studies courses and most occupational continuing education courses that are less than seven clock hours in length.

Academic Courses: Senior Citizens who are NOT seeking degree credit may enroll in semester credit hour courses on a space available basis after regular registration is complete. The Senior Citizen must complete the “Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver” and may only enroll in academic courses that are eligible for audit. Prior to enrollment, written permission is required from the instructor and the department chair. The tuition waiver is limited to six semester hours.

Percentage Refund Schedule

^ TOP

Below are the time periods for receiving specific percentage refunds. The number of days refers to the number of days (Monday through Friday, excluding days campus is closed) that have passed since the start of the term, not the number of actual class meetings. For classes that have an irregular start date after the census date: Refund days will be counted from the first day of the semester. Example: If a class starts the first week of the term, but does not actually meet until Thursday, the days Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are still counted. So, Thursday would be the fourth class day for refund for that class.
