Student Success

AT UTA, we are fostering a diverse and welcoming student population that will be the workforce of tomorrow. Our students are the leaders, innovators, creators, strategists, and entrepreneurs of the future, and that’s why we are focused on strengthening student success. We do it for our Mavericks.

Our Students

Over 40,000 students call themselves Mavericks. UTA students have unique journeys to college—from our first-generation students to our older learners to our international population to our transfer students, they all forge their own paths to our campus. We are proud of a student body that is unlike any other, and we are committed to creating a pathway for them to achieve their dreams.

Our Focus

For our students to succeed, UTA must focus on providing the resources they need to thrive, the support they need to graduate, and the skills they can use to find success after they leave our campus. Our students care about high-quality education, supporting their communities, and creating a brighter tomorrow for all.

Feedback from UTA students highlights the importance of the entire student journey during their University experience, from orientation to academic support to beyond graduation to ongoing support throughout their careers.

We’re focusing on holistic student support to reimagine the student experience and ensure every student who dreams of a brighter future has the tools to succeed at UTA. UTA is a University for any student to tap into their potential and find the Maverick inside.
