***ATTENTION: Texas Residency Officials***

Any information or input in this particular scenario would be greatly appreciated:

A student is trying to apply for Texas Residency based off the provision of "Gainful Employment." The catch is the student is living off him/her earnings to be considered gainfully employed for purposes of establishing residency. Stated in the provision is that the student should "show proof" that the his/her earnings are sufficient enough to provide at least one-half of an individual's tuition, fees and living expenses as determined in keeping with the institution's student financial aid budget.

If I haven't lost you yet, the next hurtle is that the student has a scholarship that covers $10,000 of their tuition and they believe that the amount for Residency Purposes should be after the scholarship is applied. In your experience in using the Gainful Employment Provision, have scholarship funds been deducted from a student's tuition & fees cost when determining one-half of an individual's total tuition & fees?

Thank you.
