AN EDUCATIONAL LEADER in the heart of North Texas, The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is dedicated to producing the lifelong learners and critical thinkers that the nation demands.
In 2021, UTA became just the fourth institution in the state to achieve Texas’s Tier 1 designation, a milestone of excellence in academics and research. The university reached rigorous benchmarks of quality established by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board—including surpassing $45 million in restricted research expenditures, having high-quality faculty, enrolling a freshman class of high academic achievement, and awarding more than two hundred Ph.D.s—for at least two consecutive years.
UTA’s 60,000 students enrolled in on-campus and online degree programs represent every U.S. region and more than one hundred countries. UTA is both a Hispanic-Serving Institution and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution, while U.S. News & World Report ranked UTA first in Texas and tied for third among national universities for its undergraduate ethnic diversity index. UTA in 2021 also was named the top four-year institution for veterans and their families by Military Times for the second straight year.
The university offers more than 170 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs, including new programs in substance use and treatment, sustainable building technology, and learning analytics.
