If you have already been accepted to a TMDSAS member institution and would like to appeal a course, please contact the admissions office for review.
Click the link below to begin the appeal process. Please note the following information is required before an appeal will be reviewed:
- Include your name and TMDSAS ID #
- Provide course prefix, number, and full course title, along with the granting institution’s name.
- Explain why you believe this course meets the requirements to be included in the pre-requisites.
- Attach a course syllabus for each appealed course and any other course documentation that you feel will support your claim.
During processing, the initial residency determination that was made based on the
information entered in the [Proof of Residency] section by the applicant is reviewed.
If the applicant is determined to be a non-Texas Resident, the Residency Specialist
will conduct a further evaluation and may request any necessary documentation from
the applicant to issue an official determination.
Upon transmission of the application to the intended institution(s), the applicant will receive an email notification from TMDSAS. The applicant will have the opportunity to review the application and the decisions of TMDSAS regarding their residency status.
The TMDSAS Residency Review Committee will review all appeals on a case-by-case basis and will make a residency determination that is final.
