(Feb. 6, 2012) -- The UTSA Graduate School will offer information sessions in South Texas in February. Graduate recruiters will travel to Brownsville, McAllen, Laredo and Corpus Christi to promote UTSA's graduate programs.
UTSA's commitment to provide access to educational excellence was a key factor in developing the South Texas information sessions. The sessions will provide prospective students with opportunities to discuss program requirements, graduate admissions procedures and financial assistance.
For more than 12 years including multiple visits, UTSA has actively recruited graduate students from the South Texas communities. Since 2009, graduate recruiters have reached out and followed up with thousands of prospective students from this area. The Graduate School is committed to recruiting diverse students in coordination with UTSA’s fundamental mission and vision.
As UTSA continues its success in recruiting students from South Texas, an additional goal is increase the number of faculty who also are UTSA alumni.

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.
