Hazlewood Act

The Hazlewood Act is a State of Texas benefit that provides qualified Veterans, spouses, and dependent children with an education benefit of up to 150 hours of tuition exemption, including most fee charges, at public institutions of higher education in Texas. This does NOT include living expenses, books, or supply fees.

Beginning Fall 2014, students receiving the exemption must be meeting the institution's financial aid GPA requirement. This requirement is a 2.0 cumulative GPA. These provisions will apply to veterans, the children and spouses of disabled veterans, and Legacy students.
