Two More Texas Schools Announce Free Tuition

Two more University of Texas branches have announced financial aid packages guaranteeing free tuition for Texans whose families earn $25,000 or less per year.

The UT-Dallas Tuition Promise applies to new, full-time undergraduate students. To remain eligible, students must complete 30 credit hours each year with a minimum 2.5 term and cumulative grade point average, and must continue to meet income and grant eligibility requirements.

Under a similar program at UT-Arlington called the Maverick Promise, the university will pay the difference between Pell grant awards and total in-state tuition and mandatory fees.

Both programs, which were announced this week, go into effect this fall.

The University of Texas at San Antonio and UT-Tyler earlier announced similar free-tuition programs.
