Benefit Information

Eligible veterans may assign unused hours of exemption eligibility to a child under certain conditions. To be eligible, the child must:

  • Be a Texas resident,
  • Be the biological child, stepchild, adopted child, or claimed as a dependent in the current or previous tax year,
  • Be 25 years or younger on the first day of the semester or term for which the exemption is claimed (unless granted an extension due to a qualifying illness or debilitating condition), and
  • Make satisfactory academic progress in a degree, certificate, or continuing education program** as determined by the institution.

If a child to whom hours have been delegated fails to use all of the assigned hours, a veteran may re-assign the unused hours that are available to another dependent child.

Effective fall 2011 if the veteran died prior to requesting the transfer of hours, a veteran's spouse or a child's guardian, conservator, custodian, or other legally designated caretaker may re-assign unused hours to an eligible child (through Legacy) on behalf of the veteran.

Veterans' spouses are not eligible to receive a transfer of unused hours.

Additional Information

Please note: Your Hazlewood Exemption file must be completed by the Official Census Date (12th class day during Fall/Spring and 4th class day during Summer) as published in the University Calendar in order for the Hazlewood Waiver to be invoked for that semester. When all items are received in the Veterans Affairs Office, your application will be reviewed by the Veterans Affairs Coordinator for approval.

The student service fee must be paid by the first class day to avoid any other charges.
