What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
UTPB is a great college for students that come from large or small schools, but especially small schools. Everyone is friendly, and the courses are challenging, but possible to make a good grade in. For someone who doesn't want to be intimidated by a huge campus, UTPB would be a good choice.
Sydney from Big Spring, 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.
