Special Opportunities

Above and beyond have never been closer.
We give our students every opportunity to do more. For those who want to go deeper, we have an Honors College. For those who want to go further, we have study abroad programs. For those who want a total educational immersion, we have the Maverick Scholars.  And for all of our students, there are countless ways to optimize the UT Arlington experience.

Honors College. Acceptance to our selective Honors College brings enormous benefits. It really is the best way to turn this large university into a small community of intense scholars.

Study Abroad. Spin a globe and stop it at any point. If your finger landed on anywhere other than the middle of the ocean, chances are a UT Arlington student studied there. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to get the most out of your college years.

Service Learning. In every way, large and small, UT Arlington students are putting their education, passion, and determination to work for people nearby who need assistance.

Maverick Scholars. This is a Residential Learning Community in Kalpana Chawla Hall that provides undergraduate students with meaningful contact and shared living experiences as well as strong academic support.
