UTA offers a wide range of valuable services to support you and your family when you participate in our Bound for Success program.

Dedicated Admissions Counselors

They will also be able to pull you out of class during your school day for group meetings or one-on-one counseling

Applying for College

As a member of Bound for Success, students will need to go through the application process and meet admission requirements. Your Bound for Success counselor is there to help you through each step of the admissions process, such as application priority dates, scholarship and financial aid deadline reminders and expediting document submission.

College Prep Workshops

Each admission counselor will host a series of college prep workshops on your high school campus each semester. These workshops will help you plan for college, choose a major, and help you transition from high school to college. We even have workshops designed especially for parents.

Financial Aid Workshops

In addition to college prep workshops, each admission counselor will also host a series of financial aid workshops on your campus. These educational sessions will include hands-on learning, so you understand the financial aid process and how to receive assistance paying for college. There will also be financial aid workshops designed especially for parents.
