Finish@UT, launched in February 2012 by the University of Texas System, is a complete online, bachelor’s degree completion program for individuals who have already completed their core credit hours. The program offers several fully online bachelor’s degrees from accredited University of Texas System institutions: The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB), The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and The University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB).
Broad degree options and accelerated 7- to 15-week courses allow students to tailor the program to meet their individual interests and career goals. Although Finish@UT courses are academically rigorous and follow a specified calendar, the accelerated timeframe and online format offers students the flexibility to take courses during times and locations convenient for their own day to day lives. All Finish@UT courses are offered fully online and campus visits are not required.
The degrees offered through Finish@UT focus on helping students build highly sought-after skills in communication, research, problem solving, and critical thinking. Students will obtain a well-rounded, quality education that will help open doors to a variety of career opportunities or further graduate study.
