When you purchase a membership into the Maverick Parent & Family Association (MPFA), not only are you contributing to the overall success of all students across campus, but your membership affords your UTA student three direct benefits. Testing Materials, Student Leadership Positions and Scholarship Opportunities. Read more about these benefits below.

Testing Materials

Students of MPFA members are encouraged to visit the Student Self-Service Center anytime Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. This benefit affords students the chance to receive up to four scantrons and blue books a week, or anytime there is a need for testing materials. The Parent & Family Center also offers complimentary pencils and snacks to students on the go.

Student Leadership Positions

The Parent & Family Center offers MPFA students the chance to develop their leadership skills through student leadership positions during Parent & Family Center programs and events throughout the year. Students will have the opportunity to apply for Chair and Co-Chair positions within the following activities: PFC Move-In Day Cookout, Parent & Family Weekend, and the UTA Spring Family Day. Visit the UTA Parent & Family Center for application details.

Scholarship Opportunities

The Parent & Family Center provides MPFA students with one chance per semester to apply for one of three $800 scholarships in the fall and spring semester. MPFA students have the opportunity to apply for scholarships each semester.
