Hi, My name is Andrea and my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service,
Your sons would be eligible if they meet the following requirements:
1. They were in foster or other residential care,
2. They were adopted, and
3. They were the subject of an adoption assistance agreement under Subchapter D, Chapter 162, Texas Family Code at the time of the adoption.
The pertinent part of the law relating to this assistance is reprinted below:
Sec. 54.367. EXEMPTIONS FOR ADOPTED STUDENTS FORMERLY IN FOSTER OR OTHER RESIDENTIAL CARE. (a) A student is exempt from the payment of tuition and fees authorized by this chapter if the student:
(1) was adopted; and
(2) was the subject of an adoption assistance agreement under Subchapter D, Chapter 162, Family Code, that:
(A) provided monthly payments and medical assistance benefits; and
(B) was not limited to providing only for the reimbursement of nonrecurring expenses, including reasonable and necessary adoption fees, court costs, attorney's fees, and other expenses directly related to the legal adoption of the child.
This assistance is available for use only in a Texas public college or university. You can see a list of eligible institutions by clicking on the link below:
You will need to request a letter of eligibility from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) and send a copy of this letter to the registrar of the college to which your sons are applying.
