(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.
