Salary and Debt by Major at UTRGV

We calculated a salary score for each of UTRGV's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at UTRGV to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

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.
