Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Texas Arlington! We are excited you have chosen to become a Maverick!

Your college experience begins at UT Arlington’s orientation program, New Maverick Orientation. Attending orientation is the most effective way to get your questions answered and prepare for your first year at UT Arlington.

New Maverick Orientation is not just a program; it’s a Maverick Experience!  You will learn how to navigate the campus, be introduced to helpful campus resources and discover the amazing opportunities that college life offers.

Whether you’re a freshmantransfer student or veteran, New Maverick Orientation can help you connect with your new campus community.  Through small group activities and an overnight experience, incoming freshmen can create friendships with other new students and learn insider tips and tricks from current students, faculty and staff. Our transfer and veterans programs are designed specifically for the unique needs of these students.  From academic college sessions to discussion panels with current transfer students and veterans, networking has never been easier.

Students attending New Maverick Freshman Orientation will also meet with their academic advisor, plan their schedule, and register for their first semester of classes.

We understand that starting college can be an overwhelming experience. New Maverick Orientation will calm your fears and help you get started on a path to success!  We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions as you discover your new life as a UT Arlington Maverick!
