Prepare for Orientation

Advising and Registration

Academic advising is required for all new veteran students, but it is NOT scheduled into the orientation day. Every veteran student comes to UTA at a unique place in their college career, so your first advising appointment is important to understand where you are in your degree completion at UTA. You should not feel rushed during that process. Therefore, students are encouraged to be advised prior to orientation so that we may assist you with the online registration process at orientation.

TRANSCRIPT EVALUATION

During your advising session, your advisor will need to review all of your previous transcripts and test scores. Transcript evaluation takes time, so please provide several days for our Admissions Office to process your transcript before meeting with your advisor. If you have questions about the status of your transcript evaluation, please contact the Admissions Office at 817-272-6287 or www.uta.edu/admissions/ask.

ADVISING FOR UNDECLARED AND STUDENTS UNDER 30 HOURS

Students who have not yet declared a major and students who will transfer in less than 30 credits are advised through the University Advising Center. Please contact 817-272-3140 or uac@uta.edu to make an appointment, or stop by their office on the first floor of Ransom Hall.

ADVISING FOR STUDENTS OVER 30 HOURS

Student who will transfer in more than 30 credits are advised by their specific college or department. If you are unsure who your advisor is, please click on the link below:

Registration

At UT Arlington, Class registration is completed through MyMav. Veteran students can register for their classes at their orientation session if they have been academically advised. Students that have not met with an advisor before their orientation session can gain assistance with registration from our MyMav registration tutorial video.
