Happy family attending the Parent and Family Weekend dinner at Grease Monkey


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.

Academic Success Packs

Students of MPFA members have the opportunity to pick up Academic Success Packs at the beginning of each semester. Dates, Times, and Locations for Academic Success Days will be posted in the Maverick Family Portal. Families can share that information with their student so they can choose a day to pick up their Packs. The Academic Success Packs include school supplies, snacks, and UTA gifts courtesy of the Parent & Family Services and other campus departments. Students will have the opportunity to select the scantrons and blue books they need for the semester.  

Student Leadership Positions

The Office of Parent & Family Services offers MPFA students the chance to develop their leadership skills through student leadership positions during Parent & Family Services 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 Office of Parent & Family Services for application details.

Scholarship Opportunities

The Parent & Family Services 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.

The scholarship application will take less than 10 minutes to complete and does not include an essay. Winners are randomly drawn each semester by the Division of Student Affairs Office. Scholarship recipients are announced each semester during signature Parent & Family Services events such as Parent & Family Weekend & the UTA Spring Family Day.
