Points of Distinction

  • UT Tyler has been recognized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for its student success efforts. It is one of four public institutions in Texas to significantly increase the number of degrees awarded.
  • The University launched its Pre-Med Academy to build upon the strength of its healthcare-related programs and to support students who plan to attend medical school.

THE VISION OF THE UNIVERSITY of Texas at Tyler (UT Tyler) is to be the primary educational and economic driver of East Texas by producing graduates and programs that add intellectual and economic value to the region. Located on more than two hundred acres, the campus has a park-like setting with Harvey Lake at its center.

UT Tyler enrolls more than seven thousand undergraduates. The top three bachelor’s degree programs are nursing, mechanical engineering, and kinesiology. UT Tyler also offers four doctoral programs in nursing, nursing practice, pharmacy, and human resource development, and it incorporates trips abroad to integrate global content and real-world experiences.

About 1,700 students live on campus in four residential facilities. Ornelas Hall, which houses the most freshmen, is conveniently adjacent to the Patriot Center fitness and recreation facility. The expanded university center offers multiple food options, including Chick-fil-A and Subway, as well as a Barnes & Noble university bookstore.

Students enjoy outdoor recreational adventures such as mountain biking, triathlons, skydiving, sailing, and rock climbing. The Greek system represents a small percentage of UT Tyler’s nearly one hundred student organizations. Students also participate in organizations such as the Criminal Justice Student Association, Colleges Against Cancer, and the Black Student Association. Student athletes play on seventeen men’s and women’s teams in NCAA Division II.
