University Studies How to Apply
To ensure that this degree program is the best option for you and your future goals, we require that all students apply to the program and include a written statement regarding their motivations for pursuing a University Studies degree.
NOTE: Students cannot apply for this program until they have completed at least 60 hours of undergraduate coursework that could be applied to a degree plan at UT Arlington. (Transfer credits from technical/vocational programs from a technical or community college are not accepted at UT Arlington for this degree program. Those classes will be listed on your transfer credit summary as VOCA or WECM prefixes and can not be used toward the completion of this degree plan.)
Students who are considering pursuing a professional or graduate degree should conduct research about the requirements for the advanced degree and talk with a University Studies advisor to be sure the degree meets those requirements.
The deadline is August 14, 2015 for Fall. Students must submit the online application prior to these deadlines in order to be considered for acceptance to the University Studies degree program. Once your application is submitted, you will receive an automatic email confirming that your application has been received.
Your next step is then to allow us up to 10 business days to process your application. Once it is processed, you will receive detailed instructions at your UTA email on scheduling advising for the upcoming semester.
Your major will not be changed to University Studies until your first meeting with an advisor to develop your University Studies Degree Plan.
