Free tuition program at UTSA expanding

Hundreds more University of Texas at San Antonio students will be able to have their full tuition covered, thanks to a new $3 million endowment from the University of Texas System.

The UT System’s Board of Regents approved the creation of a $300 million endowment last month to reduce the cost of higher education for undergraduate students at seven institutions in the system, including UTSA. Called Promise Plus, the endowment will continue to grow each year to provide aid to more students across the state.

UT System Chancellor James B. Millliken, Board of Regents Chairman Kevin P. Eltfie, UTSA President Taylor Eighmy and state Sen. José Menéndez touted the expanded tuition assistance program at a press conference Monday at the downtown San Antonio campus.
