The Border County Waiver for Mexican Citizens with Financial Need provides an opportunity to reduce the cost of certain universities in Texas for Mexican students. The purpose of this program is to provide, for students from Mexico who demonstrate financial need, a waiver of nonresident tuition for a number of public institutions in Texas. Instead, these students would be eligible to pay the tuition rate for Texas Residents. This program is available for educational institutions in counties that border Mexico, including: Sul Ross State University, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Texas Southmost College, Texas State Technical College-Harlingen, the University of Texas at Brownsville, the University of Texas at El Paso, and the University of Texas Pan American.
