|(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.
