UT Arlington's largest scholarship program for new students is administered through UT Arlington's Scholarship Office.  Because merit-based scholarships are important to our students and our students are important to us, our 2017-2018 scholarship program is committed to rewarding academic excellence and to improving access to college.

Scholarship eligibility is based on a variety of factors with primary emphasis on academic performance.  Students are notified of their respective scholarship offers on an individual basis.  Notifications will include the details specific to the individual scholarship award.  The dollar amount of our scholarship awards varies and typically ranges from $10,000 to $1,000 per year.  Our scholarships are renewable for up to four years for freshman awards and up to three years for transfer awards contingent upon continued solid academic performance and progress toward the degree.

To guarantee consideration for scholarships you must be admitted to UTA no later than February 15, 2017.  Apply early for best consideration.

In addition, it's helpful to continue to build your relationship with your admissions counselor.  Your admissions counselor can help you navigate the admissions process and can keep you updated on the scholarship process.


UT Arlington also offers many additional scholarship opportunities campus wide - some additional opportunities from the Scholarship Office and many from the academic and non-academic departments.
