UTPB was founded as an upper-level institution, and this University continues to welcome and accommodate older and non-traditional students. We offer numerous evening classes, online classes, and a study room for veterans--the Falcon Veterans Administration Club. The Student Multipurpose Center under construction will also house a day care center to help parents who are completing their degrees.
There are even scholarships for non-traditional students. The ECISD Education Foundation Scholarship’s requirement is graduation from an ECISD high school, regardless of year. For students who have attended high school or college classes elsewhere, there is no age limit for the Transfer Excellence Scholarship of $1,500 per semester (although the cumulative GPA requirement is 3.0). For transfer students with a 2.5-2.99 cumulative GPA, the Transfer Spur Award provides $500 per semester.
