Hazlewood Decision

On January 26, 2015, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas-Houston Division ruled that a portion of the Hazlewood Act was unconstitutional. That provision requires veterans to have been a Texas resident at the time they entered military service in order to receive exemptions of tuition and fees at Texas public institutions of higher education.


The office of the Attorney General is currently reviewing the decision and may appeal the ruling. In the interim, current Hazlewood eligibility requirements remain unchanged pending appeal and legislative action, except for the individual specifically named in the lawsuit.
