A Message From The Dean

Beth L. Brunk-Chavez, Ph.DDear Prospective Student,

UTEP Connect launched on May 4, 2015. Continuing in UTEP’s rich history of teaching high quality online courses, UTEP Connect pulls together previously existing and new online programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are happy to collaborate with the faculty of these programs to assist students from the moment they express interest in a program until they graduate.

UTEP’s mission has focused on offering students both access and excellence, and UTEP Connect is no different. Ideal for undergraduate returning UTEP students, transfer students from other institutions, and graduate students seeking flexible and quality course schedules, UTEP Connect has attracted students from nearly every state in the country. I’m especially happy to report that UTEP Connect programs have completed one full year of course delivery and several programs have graduated students. 

We want to thank the programs, faculty, and students who have participated in the courses this year. We look forward to providing additional opportunities for Miners to achieve their educational aspirations through online programs in the years to come.

I encourage you to start your application. Contact your enrollment counselor at 1-800-684-UTEP to learn more about how UTEP Connect can help you achieve your goals.
