  • Degree: Communications (Speech & Rhetorical Studies)
"I attended UTPB Online 2014-2016. Overall, my experience was pleasant. My academic adviser as well as various professors were very supportive. I majored in Communications and minored in Sociology; I believe that the courses were rigorous and engaging. The only problem I encountered (on multiple occasions) was accuracy and politeness with the representatives in the Financial Aid Department. Almost every time I contacted them, they curt and gave me wrong answers. I had to contact the supervisor at least three times to get me requests resolved.I appreciate the Falcon Promise they offered/provided to me. Due to the fact that I was considered low-income, combined with my GPA, The Falcon Promise covered any tuition and fees that my grants did not cover. This lifted a heavy burden off my shoulders."

"Dr. B. and Dr. S. are the most unprofessional instructors. They don't communicate well with their students, their expectations in their courses are extremely unrealistic, and there is no level of concern for students and their standing with the university. They do not post grades in a timely fashion and do not like being questioned on policies."

"Well, I studied in Monterrey, Mexico in Centro de Estudios Universitarios. My university was small but that let the groups to be small and better served by teachers. I felt that the teachers could paid closer attention to the student's needs. Our groups were small, with a maximum of 25 students. I feel very proud of my University which gave me the tools I needed to do what I do right now, teacher."

  • Degree: Biology
"I couldn't imagine getting my Biology degree anywhere else. The quality of the instructors is unmatched in my opinion. I would definitely recommend UTPB if you are pursuing a degree in the medical field or want a Biology degree. The price for this quality of education is great and the low teacher to student ratio makes it all worth while."

  • Degree: Biology
"The University of Texas of the Permian Basin provided a great teacher to student ratio which made learning from instructors a more personal and sincere experience. The Biology program was extremely challenging but still prepared me with the knowledge needed for Physician Assistant school. My two most influential instructors were Dr. Richard Douglas Spence and Dr. Doug Henderson. Both in their own way challenged me to not only push myself further than I thought I could go, but also helped me achieve the confidence necessary to get into Physician Assistant school. Overall, I am so happy to be a UTPB Alumni and would definitely recommend the Biology program especially for all those pursuing the medical field."
