Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

I spent a semester studying here. The best thing to do in this city is to go to Walmart. Living in Brownsville is a nightmare. There are some really nice people there, but there are also a lot of really off people. I would not go to this school again. lol

If I could, I would rate it 0 stars. As an international student who got injured during an art gallery internship that did not offer any payments (there are interships in which you get paid), there was nothing to be done. There is no insurance for international students. But! If you are a US citizen, you could be wearing high heels and break and ankle, then the University would do something for you. I graduated from there back in 2015 when the university was transitioning to be UTRGV. I am grateful for the Art Professors I had, BUT extremely pissed and disappointed at the International Students Advisors: Thelma Sullivan, Aragelia Salazar, and now Ricky Martinez. Those three didn't help me when I was struggling, when I was in deep pain. Bureacreacy towards International students is real rough. It doesn't matter if in many semester you earn great grades, I faced hell and distressful times. Went through several breakdowns. And I can understand WHY there are so many terrorist attacks in the US: because people refused to help. You must not listen but HELP. Counselors are useless!REMEMBER: INTERNATIONALS are the ones who give you MORE money. TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT!I wished I pursued a career in Internationals Diplomatic Affairs to do something for students going through issues like mine, create a program to defend them and sponsor them, and also fire those who work st the Mexican Consulate ( you cannot even trust in the Consulates either). Those jobs are a privilege, and should be about HELPING the immigrants and the internationals. NOT TO SCREW THEM.No lawyer in Brownsville wanted to take the case to sue against this University.And this is my vengeance: Ms. Marivel Graham or Ms. Marivel Ortiz (who happened to be my"boss" at the Art Gallery), I am telling you that after you destroyed me morally and physically, I am stronger, and becoming successful. I asked you a favor, and you turned away. I am doing things you are not capable of or even not capable of thinking of.Just to let everyone know to be careful with that woman.
