Tuition Advantage Announcement

  • UTRGV increases Tuition Advantage to $95,000
    Free Just Got Better! 

    The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) has increased the Tuition Advantage to $95,000 to help ease time of economic hardship. COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created an environment of unprecedented uncertainty for all of us. But we at UTRGV believe earning your degree should never be an uncertainty, which is why we are formally announcing today a bold increase to our already-historic Tuition Advantage program.

    Beginning Fall 2020, UTRGV will cover the cost of tuition and mandatory fees for qualified students with a family income of $95,000 or less. This is a $20,000 increase from our current plan.

  • What to do if you have symptoms and are worried about Coronavirus?

    If you are experiencing fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, and you have traveled to China, Japan, Korea, Iran or Italy, or traveled to an area in the US with known outbreak of the virus, or been exposed to a sick traveler from any of these areas, or been exposed to a person with Covid-19 infection in the last 14 days, you should contact your healthcare provider. Make sure to call ahead before going to your doctor’s office or emergency department to prevent any potential spread.

    As a reminder, the best way to prevent infection is to take precautions to avoid exposure to this virus, which are similar to the precautions you take to avoid the flu. CDC always recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

    UT Health RGV encourages you to visit UTRGV’S emergency preparedness website for campus updates and other resources.
