Beginning with the Fall 2014 semester, all students receiving the Hazlewood exemption must meet the Selective Service Requirements as outlined in TEC 51.9095. Senate Bill 1210 - Sec. 54.2001 states that a student may continue to receive the tuition exemption for a subsequent term only if:
Students who fail to meet these standards and lose the Hazlewood exemption may appeal. The appeal form and applicable documentation should be completed on both sides and submitted to the address listed on the Waiver & Appeal Exemption Form. No further processing of the Hazlewood application will occur, and you will be responsible for any tuition and fee payments, until you meet the requirements or until an appeal is granted.
For additional information on Selective Service requirements or to verify your registration status, please visit http://www.sss.gov
Hazlewood eligible students are also eligible to simultaneously receive federal student aid by completing the FAFSA. The exemption is always counted in your financial aid budget. Please note that your awards may be reduced if your application is processed after your aid has disbursed.
You must be registered for classes, and tuition and fees must be present on your UTA account in order for your Hazlewood Exemption to apply. If your application is not received by payment deadlines, you will be responsible for making payment arrangements with Student Accounts and will be reimbursed when Hazlewood posts. Hazlewood will not post to accounts until the previous semesters grades have posted for everyone.
Applications and Supporting Documents may be submitted by Fax: 817.272.7013 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; please include the student’s UTA Maverick ID.
Deadlines for Submission are available on the VA Home Page. UTA will not certify exemptions that are in a past semester. You must turn in an application no later than the last class date of the semester to which the exemption applies.
Continuing Education Courses and the Executive MBA Program are not eligible for Hazlewood.
Hazlewood for Veterans: (Must reside in Texas while using benefit)
Hazlewood Legacy: (Must be 25 years old or younger & meet the school's resident tuition requirements)

You must renew your application annually at FALL term. You'll need the Application Renewal Form and a printout of hours used from the Hazlewood Database for Students for Veteran, Legacy and/or Dependents.
An eligible veteran or designee who has assigned unused Hazlewood Exemption hours to a child through the Legacy Act may revoke the assignment of any unused hours by submitting the Revocation Form
