What does my tuition pay for?

Student tuition helps universities do many things. At UT Permian Basin, tuition has helped provide excellence. Tuition dollars have helped UTPB offer more degree programs and achieve national and international recognition. The School of Business is ranked in the top third of U.S. business schools, and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business - International has bestowed accreditation – making us one of the best business schools in the world. School of Education programs have received national recognition and our students have a 99 percent pass rate for State Board of Education Certification tests. Our social work program has been accepted into candidacy for accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Tuition has also allowed UT Permian Basin to recruit and retain quality faculty. Our faculty comes from across the country and the world, and they are expert researchers and leaders in their fields of study.
