Kezia Correa - 6/29/2019
Degree: Laboratory Technician
Graduation Year: 2015
"The Clinical Laboratory Sciences program offered a UTRGV is a rigorous 15 month program that prepares you for the field in many aspects. This program is very well organized, it is a small class in which students receive a good education on each subject. The students have professors available at all times. Also, rotations in clinical setting are included in the last 6 months, which help you understand more in depth, practice and prepare you for the real working environment."

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018
"If you are overseas I will suggest not to enroll in this school. I am in Germany and the connection here in this country is less than expected. Ordering your books take for ever, you can call the school and request the name of the book so that you can buy it much earlier but the book title is giving too late even if you contact the instructor one in particular that seemed not to care. No opportunity to re submit, no consideration at all. I worked on my assignment for 5 days. I submitted my assignment 4 days prior to the deadline come to find out never received any email from the school to inform me that the submission did not go thru in fact, it showed as if it did . The employees are nice but the system need improve on their online program and a positive attitude from some of the faculties. When you call for any issue they send you everywhere!"

LUIS REYESMORON - 7/5/2018
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley is part of a system of different colleges that got together to form this University. I graduated from one of these colleges in 2014, the school was formerly know as the University of Texas at Brownsville. I graduated with a Bachelors in Accounting and took most of its classes in campus. I have to say my upper level courses were challenging but at the same time enjoyable, The campus and its installations are very accommodating to its students offers job expos for future accounting jobs around the local area and in government. Currently I'm pursuing an MBA from the same school, and now that they're offering a masters in Accounting that is my next goal. the University is growing and it's also accredited. I would definitely check into to for the other degree it offers too."

Jimenez - 6/12/2018
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018
"Everyone is really kind but no one can do anything because only one person handles a matter. So if that person is on vacation or not there you don't have any help. I enrolled in January, and by April my financial aid did not process and I was taken out of the program although I have purchased my books. Something is missing. They don't have the sense of urgency... commitment. And it is strange that the Library did not have the books for online students. I think they may need to design their online programs in a more efficient manner. Too many delays, waiting for one person to do it all. Waist of time and money."

Denice Toscano - 5/28/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"At the beginning I had no idea if I liked the college or not. within time I felt more at home and once I got into my degree I learned that I loved it. I had a passion for Marine Biology and eventually got a job at the Biology Labs as a Teaching Assistant. Eventually, I earned my degree and applied to the masters degree and got in with the help of Dr. V. I was truly ecstatic. I don't know if I will be able to continue since my husband got a job offer an all but I definitely love this campus and am a true Vaquero/Bronco at heart because of it."

Linda Mercado - 3/8/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I attended the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley during my undergraduate years and will now attending their graduate studies program for Physician Assistants. Overall I found the school to be of great value to my educational experience. First of all the professors are very good with explaining what is expected of you and will be there to help you with any needs. The school is extremely affordable with much financial aid. In the social department I had great experiences with all of my classmates, they were all very friendly and open to helping you especially if their help could later be reciprocated."

Nydia Garcia - 11/8/2016
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016
"The Social Work programs is very smooth. The university is not very big and I believe that is something good. This helps the professors and staff to explain any questions the student may have. As of my social work classes, they were all very interesting and fun. I had the total opposite idea of college before I attended my first day. Every day in class there is something new to learn and the instructors are very kind, sweet, and have the passion to teach and make the valley proud of the social work graduates. The college is very peaceful and is always trying to make things easier for its students. I am about to graduate with my bachelor's in social work this December, and all I can say is that it was worth every minute of it. That is why now I would like to pursue my Masters degree. I know I am capable of changing the world."
