(Nov. 7, 2011) -- The UTSA Tuition and Fee Proposal Committee will host meetings in November to review and discuss the tuition and fee rates proposed for academic years 2013 and 2014. The committee consisting of students and faculty members meets in a biennial process for setting deregulated tuition and fees.
Open to the public, two meetings will be in the University Center Travis Room (2.202) on the UTSA Main Campus:
In addition to the public meetings, committee members will participate in other programs aimed at producing a measurable increase to the four-year graduation rate and proposed changes to tuition and fees. After input from the committee, a report will be submitted by Dec. 15 to the UT System Board of Regents to be considered and approved at the regents' March 2012 meeting.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
