Texas A&M University - Kingsville Reviews

I got my undergraduate degree here and had a pretty positive experience, specifically within the College of Business Administration. The degree plan options are great when it comes to what focus you prefer, as well as the professors and advisors you have at your disposal to use as a resource with additional questions. The only issue I had during my time here is that the financial aid office is pretty chaotic, but you typically find that same problem at universities of their size or bigger. Once you get used to maneuvering how financial aid works and the processes, it gets easier. The campus itself has many accommodations for students with various needs, and they are helpful and respectful when dealt with. I’m also pursuing graduate school here because of my overall positive experience; this school is a diamond in the rough down in South TX!

Texas A&M Univerity of Kingsville is a very excellent university for any transfer or undergraduate student. The staff and administrators are very friendly and very helpful. You are held to high expectations and by the end of your first semester, you will be proud that you chose to be a Javelina!
I haven’t dealt much with remote learning during my time here in undergraduate besides the transition to remote classes during the beginning of COVID-19. The school made the proper accommodations to try and help the students in my experience!
