Bound for Success

The value of a college education has never been greater. With the earnings gap between college graduates and those without a degree at an all-time high, it's more important than ever for students to continue their education beyond high school.

Put your potential in high gear

With Bound for Success, UT Arlington offers early admission to high school students starting in their junior year. UTA admission counselors are provided at each participating high school during the academic year to continue working with students through graduation and assist them with college admission and financial aid applications.

Bound for Success is currently available for select students in the Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Mansfield school districts. Follow the links to learn more.

Benefits for Bound for Success Members

UT Arlington offers a wide range of valuable services to support Bound for Success students and their families.

Admissions Counselors

As a Bound for Success student you'll have unprecedented access to your admission counselor. Our admissions counselors work weekly rotations at your high school so you'll be able to connect with them more frequently. They will also be able to pull you out of class during your school day for group meetings or one-on-one counseling.

College Prep Workshops

Each admission counselor will host a series of college prep workshops on your high school campus each semester. These workshops will help you plan for college, choose a major, and help you transition from high school to college. We even have workshops designed especially for parents.

Financial Aid Workshops

In addition to college prep workshops, each admission counselor will also host a series of financial aid workshops on your campus. These educational sessions will include hands-on learning, so you understand the financial aid process and how to receive assistance paying for college. There will also be financial aid workshops designed especially for parents.

UT Arlington will also host special events just for Bound for Success students on our campus. These will include basketball games, tickets to the Maverick Speakers Series, and special campus tour opportunities.
