College of Science Academic Tours

Join fellow prospective students on a guided tour through the College of Science and specific academic areas of interest on selected Thursdays throughout the spring semester.


Maverick Experience is a virtual event for future freshman and transfer students. The virtual event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and ends at approximately 3:30 p.m. The event will include sessions on admissions, financial aid and scholarships, academic colleges and schools, and more. You will also have the opportunity to see campus in a special video presentation conducted by Mav Elite Tour Guides.

You will have the opportunity to discuss the admissions process with admissions counselors in a live virtual chat. UTA representatives from each academic college and school will also engage in a live virtual chat to discuss academic majors and criteria. If you are an admitted student you will be able to ask questions and discuss next steps, orientation and enrolling in classes.


There's nothing like experiencing UTA for yourself, in real life on a campus visit - the sights, the sounds ... the feel of the breeze as you walk down the tree lined mall and the smell of fresh roasted coffee from Einstein's while a fountain gushes gently in the distance ... ok, sorry about that, got carried away just thinking about it. The next best thing, however, is clicking through our virtual tour below.
