One Stop Shop to remain open to help students with Registration
Admissions and recruitment staff help students register for classes.
“We have received positive feedback and we have decided to keep the center open.” said Rene Villarreal, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management. “ I encourage students to come the library and meet our staff. We want to do everything we can to help students complete all the necessary steps so they can have a better chance of getting the classes they want.”
 
Villarreal says it is also important for students to check their records at UTBOnline for any pending blocks. 
 
“Nothing is more frustrating than being unable to register because of a block,” said Villarreal.
 
“So check your UTB Online account and then visit the offices to gain clearance.”
Fabiola Torres, a peer mentor in the “A Support Program in Reaching Excellence” program knows it’s easy for students to proscratinate but it can have negative consequences.  
 
“If they register late, the classes they want may be filled so I am encouraging all my mentees to register for their fall classes as soon as possible,” said Torres, a sophomore majoring in special education. “In the A.S.P.I.R.E. program, we work with freshmen and some sophomores, helping them navigate their early years of college. We emphasize they are not in high school any more, and we help them get the hang of college.”
 
This year, UTB also mailed letters of acceptance to close to 1000 graduating high school seniors. Students who receive the letters are encouraged to declare their intent to enroll by Tuesday, April 30. 
 
“It is important for high school seniors to make the commitment but they should also apply for financial aid and scholarships, take the SAT or ACT and finalize all paperwork,” said Carlo Tamayo, Director of Admissions and Recruiting.
