About Orientation

The University of Texas at Arlington is dedicated to the retention and overall success of our students, by promoting academic excellence and fostering lifelong learning. New Maverick Orientation offers a variety of programs, both on campus and online, for new freshmen, transfer students, and veterans students. These programs are designed to meet your individual needs and to assist you in making a smooth transition into life as a UT Arlington Maverick. Our goal is to assist you with the transition process, acclimate you to our way of doing things, connect you to our community and its resources that support your success, and assist you in registering for your first semester of classes.  

Attending New Maverick Orientation helps students begin to take ownership of their educational goals and create a framework for their future. Embracing UT Arlington traditions and jumping into the experience will help you learn, right from the beginning, what it means to “Be a Maverick!” 

Our office is staffed by professionals who specialize in providing outstanding support and service to incoming students, undergraduate student leaders who service as guides and resources in the on campus programs, and graduate students who are gaining experience for future careers in higher education. Together, we look forward to providing you with a memorable and helpful experience. Welcome to Maverick Country!
