What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
UT Tyler to me is a very home-feeling school where I can go pretty much anywhere in the school and the people/staff/faculty here are so nice and helpful with whatever you may need help with. Their goal is to never let you down and to provide you with unlimited resources.
Danielle from Mesquite, TX
I loved it! Small, good size campus with a small student to teacher ratio and professors that are willing to help. It was a wonderful experience.
Aubrey from Ontario, CA
Graduate College of Nursing On-line was everything I needed to complete my MSN: Administration and Educator Certificate. Direct access to professors was a benefit that I did not know in my previous on-line BSN courses with another college.
Denise from Arlington, TX
Wonderful teachers and advisers.
Great college experience.
Clean and awesome class rooms.
