Maverick Experience

A full-day event that gives future freshmen and transfer students a close-up look at what UTA has to offer.

Event Details

Maverick Experience is the most comprehensive opportunity to learn about UTA academics, resources, and student life, all in one place. This event is open to prospective freshman and transfer students wanting to learn more about the amazing opportunities available at UTA.

Each Maverick Experience begins at 8 a.m. and ends at approximately 3 p.m. The event includes sessions on admission, financial aid and scholarships, academic colleges and schools, and more. You'll have the opportunity to take a campus tour and check out UTA's residence halls and apartments. The Academic and Student Life Fair will also give you the chance to chat one-on-one with representatives from campus support services, clubs and organizations, and academic departments. In addition, you can meet with an Admission Counselor to complete your application or check your application status. Lunch is provided by UTA for you and your guests.

A detailed confirmation email will be sent two business days before the event date. In the meantime, please contact the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center with questions: 817-272-8687.
