Undergraduate Catalog


Students at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley must complete the degree requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of their enrollment or a subsequent catalog. Each catalog is valid for a period of seven years from its effective date. Students enrolled beyond the applicability of their catalog of enrollment must meet the requirements of a subsequent catalog, per the recommendation of their academic advisor. This recommendation will be made based on the catalog most likely to facilitate timely graduation. Students who are not enrolled for more than two long semesters will re-enroll under the new catalog in effect at the time of re-enrollment. The University reserves the right to make changes to curriculum and co-curricular requirements, courses, fees, calendar, graduation procedures, and graduation requirements at any time in order to comply with federal, state, UT System, or UT Board of Regents rules and regulations.

It is the responsibility of the students to be familiar with degree requirements stated in their catalog. UTRGV will publish its academic catalog annually in undergraduate and graduate editions, respectively, on the university’s website under the address www.utrgv.edu/catalog. Hard copies of the academic catalog will not be made available.

It is not intended to nor does it contain all regulations that relate to students.
