Excessive Undergraduate Semester credit hours

Section 54.014, Texas Education Code, establishes a maximum number of semester credit hours that an undergraduate Texas resident may attempt while paying tuition at the rate provided for Texas residents. Attempted semester credit hours include all semester credit hours taken at a Texas public institution of higher education for which a student was registered as of Census Day, including, but not limited to, courses that have been repeated, failed, and courses from which the student withdrew. A student who exceeds the maximum semester credit hours will be charged the non-resident tuition rate. Students already holding one baccalaureate degree are exempt from the non-resident tuition rate or the maximum number of semester credit hours when enrolled in a second baccalaureate degree program.

For undergraduate resident students enrolling for the first time in fall 1999 through summer 2006, the maximum is 45 semester credit hours above the MINIMUM number of semester credit hours required for completion of the degree program in which the student is enrolled, or 120 semester credit hours for a student who is not enrolled in a degree program.

For undergraduate resident students enrolling for the first time in fall 2006, the maximum is 30 semester credit hours above the MINIMUM number of semester credit hours required for completion of the degree program in which the student is enrolled, or 120 semester credit hours for a student who is not enrolled in a degree program.
