The Division of Student Success provides support to UTA students in a variety of ways.  Using a holistic approach, we have many professional staff dedicated to anticipating and meeting the needs of the whole student.


  • Are you trying to plan your academic journey?  We can help!

ACADEMIC ADVISORS are professional staff who are trained to assist students with academic planning and to guide them with recommended actions as they learn specific information about the University. They help map out the student’s degree plan, coach them in navigating the university's processes, and make referrals to a variety of support systems available in the university community, including money management, tutoring, and other services. Advisors play a critical role in helping students complete their degree on time and can aid students in decision making around co- and extra-curricular activities and career development.


  • Are you having a hard time figuring out how to thrive at UTA?    Come and see our Success coaches.  

SUCCESS COACHES are advocates for individuals, families, groups and communities and are focused on enhancing or restoring well-being. Some examples of the topics a Success Coach can help with include goal setting, identifying personal motivation, time management, and locating and accessing resources for basic needs such as financial crises or food insecurity. Success Coaches engage people and organizations to address life challenges by helping them to better utilize their own strengths and resources. Success Coaches can offer case management services, which integrate greater awareness of community resources and social supports to address challenges and accomplish goals. 


  • Are you feeling overwhelmed and not sure what do do next?  

COUNSELING AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES are available to help students increase their understanding of personal issues, address mental and behavioral health problems, and make positive changes in their lives. A student can meet with a counselor for personal, emotional, behavioral or relationship problems. Students can receive support for difficulties adjusting to college, juggling obligations, alleviating problems and/or learning to cope adaptively. The goal of counseling is to help you resolve concerns and reach your goals in the pursuit of a more satisfying, fulfilling life.

UNIVERSITY TUTORIAL AND SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION provides academic support services for a variety of classes at no additional charge. Supplemental Instruction, or SI, is a free service that helps students work in groups to understand class concepts. Tutoring helps students develop and grow strong study habits by working one-on-one with a tutor. eTutoring provides free online tutoring, including writing assistance.

 The I.D.E.A.S. CENTER is a hub of services to UT Arlington students undergoing a transition to a four-year university. The center is funded by a Department of Education grant aimed at partnering with transfer students, veterans, sophomores, and students re-entering school after a break, to help pave a path to student success. We offer free tutoring and mentoring.

 STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES staff members assist students with selecting courses, setting academic goals, developing strategies for academic achievement, and preparing for meetings with their major academic advisors. Students work directly with our staff to explore current academic needs and the resources available to develop an individualized system of support. Coaching and advising are offered for personal, financial, and career matters.




The Division has developed a team of staff across the University who are prepared to provide student support in a variety of ways.  This includes all of the resources mentioned above, with additional support from Student Money Management, the Registrar and Financial Aid, to name just a few of our partners.
