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.   

Does your family make more than $100k a year?

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!
