If she has been in Texas for the 12 months prior to enrollment, then she is a resident, regardless of her citizenship.

Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Permanent Residency question

We are trying to work with a student who indicated on their application that they are a Citizen of Mexico but that they hold permanent residence status here. After she brought in documentation, it seems as though she was a little confused when answering the questions. She brought us an employment authorization card (which she thought was her permanent residence card), along with her SS card which notes it's valid for work only. She claims she doesn't have any other documentation.

The student graduated from a Texas high school back in 2005 and says she's been here since she was 3 months old. Being a relative newbie to residency in general, I'm just curious as to how your institution would approach this situation. Any thoughts? Thanks!
