The University of Texas at Arlington and the New Maverick Orientation offices welcomes Veteran students to the university. This Orientation is designed to ensure you have a clear understanding of your Veteran’s benefits, how to certify, and information on the services and resources that are available to you here at UTA. As a thank you for your service, Veterans choosing to attend the Veterans Orientation program will not be charged the Orientation Fee.

Prior to Orientation Registration please review the Orientation Dates, Before Orientation List, and After Orientation Guide.

The Office of Veterans Affairs provides certification of benefits to admitted and enrolled students. Veterans seeking information that have not been admitted and/or enrolled in courses should contact the Veterans Upward Bound Office who will provide assistance while at the university.

Dependents of Veterans, should attend a regular Freshman Orientation or Transfer Orientation.
