Louisiana Reciprocal Out-of-State Tuition Waiver

The Louisiana Reciprocal waiver exemption is to provide a reduced tuition rate for individuals who are residents of Louisiana who enroll in certain public universities in Texas. Students who are residents of states other than Texas must enroll in a Texas public institution located within 100 miles of the Texas border.  Contact the Financial Aid Department's office of Lamar State College Orange on when you plan to attend. They will be able to advise you of their eligibility. The student must be able to provide the college or university with proof that he/she meets the program eligibility requirements. Generally, student eligibility for a waiver must be established prior to or at the time of enrollment.
