Negotiated Rulemaking

Texas Education Code 61.0331 requires the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to engage in negotiated rulemaking with institutions of higher education and other affected entities in accordance with the Negotiated Rulemaking Act, Texas Government Code Chapter 2008, when adopting policies, procedures, or rules relating to certain matters. Texas Administrative Code, Rule 1.14, sets forth the THECB's negotiated rulemaking process.

Upcoming Meetings: 



Negotiated Rulemaking Committee (NRMC) on Tuition Equalization Grant
The annual Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG) Need Survey and the annual Financial Aid Database System (FADS) report have been identified as having a significant overlap in data. Based on this, and in order to reduce the annual reporting requirements for institutions, the THECB is proposing to phase out the annual TEG Need Survey in its current form and, instead, build the annual TEG Need Survey using FADS data. To do so requires a modification to the TEG allocation process. Texas Education Code, Section 61.0331, directs the THECB to employ the negotiated rulemaking process when adopting rules relating to financial aid allocation methodologies.

The NRMC met on October 14 and reached full consensus on proposed rule. Proposed rule will be published in the November 4 edition of the Texas Register for a 30-day public comment period that will expire on December 4.
