If your family income is $100k or less a year, your tuition and fess are covered at UTPB

At UTPB you can earn your degree for free! We believe that a college education is transformative and money shouldn't hold you back. That's why we created the Falcon Free program, a plan that covers the cost of tuition and mandatory fees for most students.  

So what is Falcon Free? Thanks to a generous endowment from UT System, UT Permian Basin can now cover tuition and fees for any Texas resident, pursuing an undergraduate degree, whose family (or individual) has an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $100,000 a year or less! You read that right; you can go to school for free at UTPB. No loans. No debt. All students have to do is apply to UTPB and fill out their FAFSA/TASFA. The money will be automatically awarded to their account.  

Whether you’re an incoming freshman, transfer student, online student, or a current Falcon- you can qualify for Falcon Free! 

Does your family make more than $100k a year? That’s okay too! There are several other tuition assistance programs that fall under Falcon Free. Visit our Falcon Free page to learn more about all of the options. You can also contact our financial aid team. It’s their mission to find scholarships for our students to make earning a college degree affordable! 

Note: UTPB has more funding available to help students than ever before! However, the dollars are not endless. We strongly encourage interested students to apply early and fill out their FAFSA/TASFA as soon as possible.
