The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) was established in 1895 and has evolved into one of the leading universities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. 

Located midway between the metropolitan centers of Dallas and Fort Worth, UT Arlington students can experience the “real world,” with more than 39,000 students in attendance from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. More than 5,000 students live on campus and experience college life, from UTA traditions like ooze ball and bed races to participating in one of the more than 300 student organizations. 


If you attend UT Arlington through CAP, you are not eligible to be considered for UTA’s General Academic Scholarships. But you may be eligible for other scholarships.
