I have the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan how do I get my Tuition & Fees billed to them?
For a student to have their Tuition & Fees billed to the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (TGTP) they must provide an In-State Enrollment Verification letter each term. Students who attend orientation may provide a picture ID and TGTP ID card for the first semester only. The students TGTP plan is normally processed to the student's account within two business days. The University will bill TGTP after the last day the student can add and/or drop classes in order to bill the finalize cost for the term/semester. Courses dropped after the last day to drop with a refund will still be billed to TGTP.
