The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College is a unique institution in many ways and offers prospective and active students numerous opportunities to explore and appreciate higher education. Welcoming you to learn more about UTB through the Student Affairs website and inviting you to join us on our historic and beautiful campus may lead you to a future you never imagined.

Through T.R.I.O. outreach programs selected students in area communities become directly affiliated with UTB beginning in middle school. T.R.I.O. programs include Talent Search, Classic Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science. Early college planning beginning no later than seventh grade and continuing throughout high school sets the foundation for success in higher education. 

A U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant to the Student Affairs Division provides services for selected Lopez High School students. The goal of that initiative is to promote healthy lifestyles among students aspiring for success. A wide variety of planned activities will bring participating students to UTB over a three-year period.

All students attending UTB enjoy the benefits of support services to help them succeed with college by receiving tutorial assistance and mentoring on campus through A.S.P.I.R.E., Veterans Upward Bound and C.A.M.P. programs. The latter is a special program available only to migrant students. 

Regardless of whether you are seeking a one-year certificate, a doctoral degree or an associate, bachelor or master degree along the way, UTB affords you the opportunity for a better future through higher education. In Student Affairs we are here to make your college experience one that is successful and enriches the strong academic preparation you will receive at UTB in order to compete in our global society.
