Recommend a future Maverick

The Division of Enrollment Management invites faculty and staff to refer potential future Mavericks to our undergraduate and graduate recruitment teams.

While Enrollment Management maintains a mailing list of over 100,000 prospective students each year, we know there are great prospective students who are not on our list. We want to reach students of all ages and academic levels, from high school freshman to potential master's and doctoral students.

That’s where you come in.

Please share contact information of potential future Mavericks so UTA recruitment teams may follow up with them.

With your help, we’ll continue to keep UTA‘s enrollment strong.
