Residency Appeals

During processing, the initial residency confirmation based on the information entered by the applicant in the [Proof of Residency] section is subsequently reviewed. If the applicant is confirmed 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 confirmation. 
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 TMDSAS confirmation of their residency status. 
The TMDSAS Residency Review Committee will review all appeals on a case-by-case basis and will make a residency confirmation that is final.
