The state legislative session ended with no legislation amending the Hazlewood educational benefits. The Senate and House could not agree on changes to eligibility or legacy, so Hazlewood remains unchanged. Basic eligibility is to have entered the service from Texas, served at least 180 days in Title 10 status, and be a resident of the state. The eligible veteran may use the 150 free credit hours at a state university, or may pass eligibility to a dependent child. We strongly recommend that you avail yourself of the benefit at the earliest time possible, because the benefit (basic and/or legacy) remains at risk.
