Building a Partnership

UT Arlington recognizes that parents play a vital role in their student’s success. The Parent & Family Center (PFC) was created to serve the parents and guardians of UT Arlington students by keeping parents informed and involved in their student’s college experience.

We know that the more informed you are, the better we can work together to help our students achieve their goals. This website will provide information on the programs and services offered by the PFC, as well as links and information about parents’ most frequently asked questions and the most popular resources on campus. Please explore the site and then call or email us if you have any additional questions. We look forward to partnering with you!

Quick Tip

While your student may be tempted to return home every weekend during those first few weeks, encourage him or her to stay on campus and build new friendships. Similarly, if your student lives at home and commutes to school, encourage him or her to attend programs and events on campus. Developing a sense of belonging during the first six weeks will increase student satisfaction and likelihood to persist and graduate.
