The University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley announced Monday it will offer free tuition to students with a family adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less.

Called the UTRGV Tuition Advantage, the program will take effect beginning with the 2020 academic year.

“The UTRGV Tuition Advantage will be a game-changer for higher education in Texas,” said UTRGV President Guy Bailey. “At UTRGV, you can obtain a high-quality education without mortgaging your future. I truly believe we are the best value in Texas higher education.”

Bailey added that he expects more than half of the university’s student population will attend tuition free when the program is in place.

“The ability to pay for college should not be a determining factor in who attends a UT institution,” said Board of Regents Chairman Kevin P. Eltife in a press release from UTRGV. “The regents are committed to minimizing financial barriers, and we are exceptionally pleased with UTRGV’s new tuition assistance program and the impact it will have on making access and affordability much easier for students and their families.

The eligibility criteria differs slightly from first-time freshmen to returning students and transfers, but all must be a Texas resident enrolled in at least 15 semester hours.
