(April 9, 2010)--The UTSA Graduate School will offer information sessions April 12-14 across South Texas. Graduate recruiters along with graduate admissions and financial aid staff members will travel to Brownsville, McAllen and Laredo to promote UTSA graduate programs.
UTSA's commitment to provide access to educational excellence was a key factor in developing the South Texas information sessions. Prospective students can learn about program requirements, graduate admissions procedures and financial assistance. Staff will be available to assist students in filling out the graduate school application.
"Many graduate students work and have families, so we thought we would take the UTSA graduate experience to them," said German Medina, UTSA Graduate School admissions officer.
For more than 10 years, UTSA has actively recruited students from South Texas and continues its efforts to increase diversity on the UTSA campuses. Many new graduate programs incorporate aggressive recruiting to continue to attract more minority students.
For more information and to register for a session, visit the UTSA Graduate School Web site. When registering, information session sites are listed.
