UTB/TSC and UTPA Students

As a legacy student from either UT Brownsville/Texas Southmost College or UT Pan American, you play a vital role in not just the beginning of The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, but in its legacy for decades to come. A process has been designed for legacy students – current undergraduate and graduate students – to continue your educational journeys at UTRGV.

You may continue with your current degree plan, as long as you can complete that degree plan by August 2019; or, you may switch to your major’s UTRGV degree plan. Please note that all UTRGV graduation requirements still apply, such as total hours of residence. For example, transfer hours brought in from UTB/TSC do not count as hours of residence toward a UTRGV degree.
