UTPB's Guaranteed Tuition Rate Plan enables students to lock in today’s tuition rates, avoid any future tuition increases and earn up to $4,000 off the cost of a four-year degree.


  • The Guaranteed Tuition Rate Plan is available to all incoming freshmen and undergraduate transfer students entering UTPB in Fall 2014 or thereafter.
  • The plan is available only to incoming students who are seeking their first bachelor’s degree.
  • The plan does not apply to continuing undergraduates or graduate students.
  • Community college students may opt for the Guaranteed Tuition Rate Plan by declaring an intent to transfer to UTPB on the Future Transfer Students agreement.
  • Once the Guaranteed Tuition Rate Plan option is selected, a student may not change to the Traditional Tuition Plan.

How it Works

  • Earn 30 credit hours toward your degree and a minimum 2.5 GPA at UTPB your first academic year.
  • Receive $1,000 off your next semester’s tuition payment.
  • Earn a second $1,000 tuition rebate after completing 60 credit hours toward your degree in your second year and maintaining a minimum 2.5 GPA at UTPB.
  • Earn a final $2,000 tuition rebate after completing 90 credit hours toward your degree in your third year and maintaining a 2.5 GPA at UTPB.
  • Qualify for an additional $1,000 on-time tuition rebate through the State of Texas for graduating on time with no more than three hours outside your degree plan.
