What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
This University is a great choice for any upcoming undergrad/graduate student. UTPB is cost-friendly, diverse in many ways, and has excellent Professors. I will add, this school isn't just interested in academics it also offers the college experience which is something, I feel, is not as important but holds importance.
Melissa from Odessa, TX
Pretty good. They could improve their technology, especially for the teaching program. Does well on most things. Could use less expenses put on tuition that I do not use.
