Texas Education Code, Section 61.071, requires the THECB to appoint non-voting student representatives to certain advisory committees. Students seeking nomination to an Advisory Committee may serve on one of four THECB advisory committees for a two-year term beginning June 1 and ending May 31. The advisory committees are: ApplyTexas, Financial Aid, Learning Technology, and Texas Transfer. The student perspective is very valuable to these committees and we highly encourage student participation. Students must be nominated through the president’s office of each institution.
