Information for Current Students

University College was founded to help UT Arlington students attain the highest levels of academic success. We are here to help ease the transition into your college education your freshman year, and will continue to stand beside you and provide the resources, advice, and opportunities you'll need to grow and learn throughout your academic career. Beginning in the fall of 2010, all students will be admitted into University College as their academic home. Freshman and undeclared students will receive academic advising from the University Advising Center and will remain a part of University College until they declare a major and meet necessary conditions for transfer to their major school or college.
