RULE §22.234Grant Amounts

(a) The amount of a TEXAS Grant offered through an eligible public institution may not be reduced by any gift aid for which the person receiving the grant is eligible, unless the total amount of a person's grant plus any aid other than loans received equals or exceeds the student's financial need.

(b) The Board shall determine and announce the maximum amount of a TEXAS Grant not later than the final day of January prior to the start of each fiscal year. The calculation of the maximum amount per semester will be based on the mandates contained in Texas Education Code, §56.307. However, no student's TEXAS Grant shall be greater than the amount of the student's financial need.

(c) An eligible public institution may not charge a person receiving a TEXAS Grant through that institution, an amount of tuition and required fees in excess of the amount of the TEXAS Grant received by the person in that semester unless it also provides the student sufficient aid other than loans to meet his or her full tuition and required fees for that semester. Nor may it deny admission to or enrollment in the institution based on a person's eligibility to receive or actual receipt of a TEXAS Grant.

(d) The eligible public institution may require a student to forgo or repay the amount of an initial year grant if the student is determined to have failed to complete the necessary High School Program or Associate Degree, upon which eligibility for the program was determined, as evidenced by the final high school or college transcript.

(e) Grant calculations and disbursements are to be completed in accordance with the General Provisions outlined in Subchapter A of this Chapter.
