Additional Questions?

This event is specifically designed for new incoming students who are beginning study at UTA in the summer or fall semester.  While we always appreciate the support of parents, family, and friends, this event has been designed for students only.  Parents and other family members may instead want to ensure that they attend New Maverick Orientation and come back in October for our Parent and Family Weekend.  For an overview of the schedule, visit our Schedule and Information site.  If you have additional questions about this event, feel free to contact us via email at
