Veteran Students

The University of Houston Downtown Financial Aid Office encourages all veterans to explore funding opportunities provided by the US Department of Veterans Affairs and the state of Texas, in addition to any eligibility provided by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

 

To check your eligibility and learn more about the application process for Chapter 30, 31, 35, 1606, and 1607 benefits, please visit the Admissions Veteran Students page.

 

If you have exhausted your benefits through Veterans Affairs or meet other unique qualifications, you may be eligible to receive aid designated for Texas veterans through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. These benefits include:

 

  • Military: Texas National Guard Tuition Assistance Program
    To provide an exemption from the payment of tuition to certain members of the Texas National Guard, Texas Air Guard, or the State Guard.
    Documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office prior to the census date each semester.

 

 

  • Military: Hazlewood Exemption for Texas Veterans & their Dependents
    To provide an education benefit to honorably discharged or separated Texas veterans.
    *There has been a change in the citizenship requirement for the Hazlewood Exemption Program. It is no longer required that the applicant be a U.S. citizen. The applicant must be a permanent resident of the state of Texas. The change is effective as of Spring 2008.
    Documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office prior to the census date each semester.

 

  • Combat Exemption for Children of Military Service Members
    To provide an education benefit to a child, or stepchild, of a memeber of the Armed Forces who is deployed to active duty in a combat zone outside the United States.
    Documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office prior to the census date each semester.
