Coordinating Board Rule 13.93 states that if a student chooses to complete the requirements for a teaching certificate, the minimum number of credit hours required for the degree should b e the minimum number of credit hours in which it is possible to satisfy the requirements of both the baccalaureate degree and the teaching certificate.

Courses dropped for reasons that are determined by the institution to be totally beyond the control of the student shall not be counted.

The amount of tuition rebate is $1,000.00 unless the total amount of undergraduate tuition paid by the student to the institution awarding the degree was less than $1,000.00 in which event the amount of tuition to be rebated is an amount equal to the amount of undergraduate tuition paid by the student to the institution.
A student who paid the institution awarding the degree an amount of undergraduate tuition less than $1,000.00 may qualify for an increase in the amount of the rebate, NOT to exceed a total rebate of $1,000.00 for any amount of undergraduate tuition the student paid to the other Texas public institutions of higher education by providing the institution awarding the degree with proof of the total amount of that tuition paid to the other institutions.
The tuition rebate shall be reduced by the amount of any outstanding undergraduate student loan, including the emergency loan, owed to or guaranteed by the State of Texas, including the Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation and the Department of Education.
If a student has more than one outstanding undergraduate student loan, the institution shall apply the amount of the rebate to the loans as directed by the student.
If the student fails to provide timely instructions on the application of the amount, the institution shall apply the amount of the rebate to retire the loans with the highest interest rates first.
