The increse in nonresident enrollment affects the class entering in 2006. Any change in the class size will occur with the class entering in 2007 or later.
Here is the language for the nonresident limitation:
Sec. 13. Limitation of Nonresident Enrollment in Certain State-supported Professional Schools.
1. None of the funds appropriated by this Act may be expended for the establishment,
operation, or maintenance, or for the payment of any salaries to the employees in, any
wholly or partially state-supported medical, dental, or law school which: (a) imposes a
limitation on the number of students that it admits, (b) in an academic semester denies
admission to one or more Texas residents who apply for admission and who reasonably
demonstrate that they are probably capable of doing the quality of work that is necessary to obtain the usual degree awarded by such school, and (c) in the same academic semester admits, as either class, nonresidents of the State of Texas in a number greater than 10 percent of the class of which such nonresidents are a part. Limitation of nonresident enrollment at The University of Texas Law School, Texas Tech University School of Law, and the University of Houston Law Center may be increased to 35 percent of the class of which nonresidents are a part provided that the admission of such nonresident students is on the basis of academic merit alone. By the provisions of this paragraph it is intended to withhold funds appropriated by this Act from state-supported medical, dental, and law schools which limit their enrollments and which fill more than 10 percent of their classes with non-resident students in the case of medical and dental schools, and 35 percent in the case of The University of Texas Law School, Texas Tech University Law School and the University of Houston Law Center, when the result of admitting a nonresident denies admission to a qualified Texas applicant. This provision shall not apply to the funds appropriated to the Coordinating Board for the funding of Baylor College of Medicine or to funds appropriated for tuition equalization grants for students attending private colleges.
