Designated Tuition Set-Aside Notice

In accordance with provisions of the Texas Education Code, Section 56.014, each semester UTPB will maintain on the website a notice for every student who has paid designated tuition. The notice will indicate the amount of their tuition that is required to be set aside and used for need-based financial aid to UTPB students. No action is necessary by the recipient, as this is an informational notice only.

  • So what is it? Tuition set aside is the portion of the designated tuition paid by resident students, set aside and dedicated to provide need-based financial aid to students.
  • Why is it set aside in the first place? It’s the law. The University is required to set aside a portion of designated tuition charged to a resident student.
  • How much is set aside? Fifteen-percent per credit hour of designated tuition in excess of $46.00 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate residents is set aside.
