Honor Graduate Certificate
4/18/12: The Texas Education Agency allows each public and accredited non-public high school in Texas one "Honor Graduate Certificate." This Certificate shall be presented to the highest ranking graduate in the senior class. Under no circumstances should a student ranked lower than "highest" be awarded this honor. The highest ranking graduate should receive a Certificate and a declaration document authorizing the president of any state supported college or university to provide a waiver for tuition as specified in the law (Texas Education Code, §54.201). Some non-state-supported colleges and universities may also recognize this award and provide the tuition waiver. Students should present the declaration document to the college or university upon admission and retain the certificate for personal use.
