Scholarship deadline approaching quickly

Students celebrate after graduation

Students looking to earn their portion of the nearly $15 million merit based scholarships UT Arlington awards annually need to be admitted Feb. 15, 2013 in order to be considered for scholarship opportunities.

Students admitted before the deadline qualify for scholarship awards based on their SAT or ACT scores, and their class rank or high school GPA.  Award types and their qualifications are availabe on the Scholarship Office's website.  

UT Arlington does not require an additional scholarships application.  All students admitted before the deadline are automatically considered for general scholarships.

Awards range from $2,000 to $20,000 annually.

The University awards scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis according to a student's admission date.  Qualifying students are encouraged to apply for admission as soon as possible.

National Merit Finalists can earn up to $20,000 to attend UT Arlington.  Top students considering studying in UT Arlington's Honors College also have an additional scholarship they can apply for worth $20,000.  Honors College Scholarships do require an additional application.

Award notifications for UT Arlington's general scholarships will be sent in March 2013.  Students must accept their awards within two weeks to secure their funding.

Incoming freshmen can renew scholarships up to 4 years, contingent upon maintaining a high GPA at the Univeristy.

Freshman Interest Groups accepting applications for 2013-2014

The application for UT Arlington's student success focused learning communities, Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs), are now open.

Admitted students can choose from 19 different FIGS for the 2013-2014 academic year, including business, engineering, nursing, and arts focused groups.

University College's website includes step-by-step instructions covering how to apply for FIGs.

Learning communities group students together by academic interest where they will take courses together, be assigned a Peer Academic Leader to help them transition, and be engaged in student success and social activities on campus.

FIGs students can live on or off campus.

Students who participate in a FIG have a higher college GPA and are retained at a higher percentage than their peers who do not join a FIG.
