(Oct. 29, 2009)--UTSA has its own childcare facility for use by UTSA students, faculty and staff. Licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the facility also is a Texas Rising Star Child Care Delivery Service provider.

Open since January 2003, the UTSA Child Development Center (CDC) is between parking lots 10 and 11 on the southwest side of the Main Campus, adjacent to the University Oaks Apartments. The CDC is licensed to care for up to 106 children ranging in age from six weeks to five years.

UTSA students who have children may be eligible for financial aid to help cover the costs of childcare. Additionally, a scholarship program is available to help pay for childcare expenses and is awarded based on a number of factors including the applicant's financial need, academic performance and space availability.

"Eighty percent of the slots are dedicated to students with the remaining 20 percent set aside for faculty and staff," said Norma Castillo, CDC administrative assistant.

Tuition rates and available slots for the CDC vary depending upon the child's age, family income, and student or faculty status. A variety of payment plans are available for parent convenience and include monthly, bimonthly and lump-sum arrangements. Parents should apply as soon as they anticipate needing to utilize the facility, since they may be placed on a waiting list.

According to Castillo, undergraduate students must be enrolled in at least 12 hours and graduate students must be enrolled in at least nine hours to be eligible for placement on the waiting list.

The CDC is open 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, and closed weekends and holidays.

For financial aid information call (210) 458-8000 or visit the UTSA Financial Aid Web site.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
