About Maverick Discount Program

Most discounts are available to all students, faculty, staff, UTA Retirees, and parents; a few are offered only to students or only to employees. Business participants must provide a minimum 10% discount to participate in the program, so being a Maverick also means saving on a large variety of products and services.

Our Mission

Student Governance supports the philosophy of maximizing student learning through active participation by students. In an additional sense, its activities support the concept of the community at UT Arlington by involving students in determining the community environment. The department dedicates itself to helping all students to get involved, from freshmen to graduate students.

Our Vision

Student Governance is comprised of Student Government and the UTA Ambassadors. Through these programs, UT Arlington students have the opportunity to Make a Difference and Make Some Memories.
