UTRGV remains committed to your safety, success, and experience during Fall 2023.

Click on each tab to learn more about what students can expect on campus this semester.

Safety First. Always.

You're here to earn a degree. And we're here to help make sure your educational journey is as safe as possible.

Below you’ll find information on what we're doing — and what you should do — to stay safe this semester.

General Health & Safety Guidance

We want you to live your best life. At UTRGV, that means doing everything you can to make it a healthy one.

From practicing good hygiene, like handwashing, to staying home when you’re sick, all Vaqueros play a role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses on campus.

Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly are essential to health, but so are rest and relaxation. Between projects and exams, make sure you are getting enough sleep to recharge — you’ll need that energy to maximize your semester!

Staying up to date with your vaccines also protects you and others against many preventable diseases. That’s why we offer a variety of immunizations, including MMR, TD, Hepatitis B, Varicella, Meningitis, influenza (flu), and COVID-19 vaccines (among many others) in all UT Health RGV Student Health locations.

For more information about Student Health Clinics, including how to schedule an appointment, visit UTRGV’s Health Services page.

Mental Health & Wellness

Between classes, work, and staying safe, "self-care" might seem like a fantasy. But getting your mind right is just as critical for your overall wellness as exercising and healthy eating. Whether you’re feeling anxious about school or wondering if the pandemic will ever end, being in tune with yourself can make each day a little better.

Visit our Mental Health & Wellness page for more information on resources that can help guide you toward a greater sense of self.

Your Success is Our Success

Shaping The Future of Texas is what we do, and we take great pride in knowing that you entrust us with yours.

Below is some information that may help you find your path to success this semester.

Financial Support

Student Employment
Work Study allows for part-time student employment on-campus or off-campus with a pre-approved organization. Gain work experience and professional skills, network in your field of interest, and best of all earn a paycheck- helping you pay for your education, without ever having to leave campus. All students with hourly assignments will earn at least $12/hour.
Scholarships are financial assistance that do not require repayment. There are scholarships specifically designed for entering freshmen, transfer students, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Scholarships are awarded based on merit, need, and achievement in academics, athletics, the arts, or other scholarly areas.
Grants are a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. Grants are typically awarded based on financial need and are provided by various sources including federal, state, and institutional funds. Your financial need is determined by the results of your FAFSA.
Student loans can be a great resource for you and your family as you pay for your UTRGV education. Federal loans have closely regulated, low-interest rates; loans from states or private lenders have varying rates and terms. Some loans may be forgiven or canceled under some circumstances.
