Welcome to UT Arlington! We are very excited that you will be joining us!

We are excited that you have chosen University of Texas at Arlington for your education. Attending UT Arlington is a great opportunity and New Maverick Orientation will help you take advantage of everything UT Arlington has to offer including our excellent faculty, top-ranked programs and more than 300 student organizations.

Many students have questions about academics, student services, and financial aid, along with international documentation and pre-arrival questions. Attendance at an International orientation program will not only answer these questions but prepare you for the college experience at UT Arlington. International orientation is designed for the specific needs of international students, to acquaint you, not only with UT Arlington’s approach to academic success, but the cultural norms of this area, federal requirements for international students, and networking with students, staff and resources unique to this university.

International orientation is mandatory for all International students with a F-1 or J-1 Visa.  International students with other visa types should attend the orientation session for their classification (freshman, transfer, graduate)

International students must complete their document check-in at the International Welcome Center, located in the Swift Center, before attending an orientation session.

Check out the links on the left for more information about orientation dates, pre-arrival information, testing requirements, frequently asked questions and to register for your orientation session.
