Texas Residency Residency Appeals
If you have submitted the Residency Core Questions form and have been classified as a non-Texas resident after review of the form, you have the option to appeal your residency determination.
To appeal your determination, you must write a letter stating why you should be considered a Texas resident and providing any additional information to state your case further. Your letter should be addressed to the Residency Appeals Committee. The committee will review the information you submit and make a determination; the decision of the Residency Appeals Committee is final. No further levels of appeal are possible.
Residency determinations are based on state statutes and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rules and regulations that interpret those statutes. The residency officials at UT Austin must abide by the statutes and regulations when making residency determinations.
In general people who move to Texas to go to UT Austin (or another college/university) are presumed not to have the required intent to make Texas their domicile. That presumption may be overruled in some cases. See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
