Hi David,
Great question - one we have mulled around for some time.  Our conclusion is that we would not classify the F-1 student as eligible under SB-1528/HB-1403 as the residency affidavit required for resident tuition is at best problematic for F-1 visa applicants.   F-1 students are individuals who are in the country for a fixed period of time and who do not intend to become residents of the U.S.

Specifically, the F-1 visa applies to "an alien having a residence in a foreign country which he has no intention of abandoning their home country, and who seeks to enter the United States temporarily and solely for the purpose of pursuing such a course of study."

If the student has submitted an affidavit stating an intent to become a permanent resident of the U.S. in accordance with Texas requirements, the F-1 federal guidelines will be difficult to meet.  It becomes quite difficult to reconcile an intention to become a permanent resident of the U.S. with an intention to be in the U.S. temporarily and return to one's country.

So, long answer short David - we would not.

Good afternoon,

I have a hypothetical residency question for your consideration:

"A minor F1 international student is sponsored and attends high school in Texas for 4 years and graduates. That student now wants to attend a Texas public institution of higher education. Would you treat them as an F1 International Student or could they qualify as a Noriega student (SB 1528) ? Why or why not?
