Our goal is to provide the tools to help our workforce keep up or stay ahead of the demanding and changing job market and its needs. This is done through a dynamic range of in-state tuition incentives, job training, apprenticeships & internships, continuing professional education, and dual credit programs.
Tuition for Students
The Economic Development and Diversification In-state Tuition incentive may be offered to qualified businesses that are in the decision-making process to relocate or expand their operations into Texas. The incentive allows employees and family members of the qualified businesses to pay in-state tuition fees if the individual files with a Texas institution of higher education. Without this incentive designation, a student must reside in Texas for a 12-month period to be entitled to pay the tuition fees of a Texas resident.
