Students must apply directly to the university offering the program of study desired. The University of Texas at El Paso Library does not act in any way as an intermediary.

The UTEP Library is glad to offer opportunities for students to do their required practicums or capstone projects when possible. These are generally arranged by the student in conjunction with the professor and the responsible librarian. Most practicums are done in Technical Services (Nancy Hill, or Special Collections (Claudia Rivers, )
