Tripti garg - 11/24/2019
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019
"My son started his graduation year in 2019 as a bio medical engineering program. His teacher were great until the classes started to get difficult in 2020. His professor in major bio medical subject can't speak proper English. And have a least knowledge in related field. The university charge so much turion fees but can't keep standards high for the professors who deal with the student futures. We belong to medical class family who had very limited resources to get better colleges with limited budget. So we have less options to get better school. This is school gave him scholarships but the professors are qualified according to their educational level."

J.L. - 8/3/2019
Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2018
"UTA RN-BSN is a great program! Easy to complete, very doable even working full time and having two kids. Courses are online and very reasonable workload. Price for program is as advertised, $8995 tuition and is what I paid. Of course I knew and understood about additional costs of books, so add about $100 for each class book and theres always the option of renting the book for a fraction of the cost. Other reviews state that UTA is misleading with prices which I do not believe so, but if you are in the RN to BSN program it means you are an RN already and you should have done the necessary research on this program. To wrap it up, great program, finished it in 9 months with all As, while working full time and not letting up on my father and husband duties. Go Mavericks!"

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014
"This campus is now way too crowded, when I attended it was very confusing to get around and noone in the registar was very helpful nor financial aid department. If you're a student who needs help and alot of questions answered, dont bother asking anyone. If you struggled in high school, I would not attend UTA the classes are extremely hard even the basic classes, and the classes are huge so if you need a small class size, this also isn't the place for you."

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016
"I did the UTeach program at UTA and i am so blessed to have encountered their table at orientation. I was still undecided, I just knew I loved math, and then everything connected. The UTeach program is exceptional and prepare you for the classroom so well. I was so confident on my first day of teaching at my school. To anyone who would want to be a math or science teacher UTeach is amazing and the teachers truly care and are the best!!"

Lydia Martinez - 6/29/2019
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2019
"I had an amazing experience at the University of Texas at Arlington. CAPPA (College of Architecture, Planing, and Public Affairs), which is what they call the architecture program, was a fun experience. I met people that are now my best friends for life. The professor are great and always want the best for you. Architecture school is really tough and requires a bunch of dedication, time, and all-nighters, but like any other career, you learn the most at a firm."

"This school GENUINELY cares and understands the needs of international students, best decision I ever made was coming to this school. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, their degree programs are also well tiered especially the higher level degree programs to various concentrations in industry and academia."

Madi - 6/22/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"Seriously the worst college I’ve ever attended. The advisors are THE WORST, especially in the nursing specialty. They will tell you things that aren’t true and then you end up not being accepted into the nursing program after going to the university for 2 years. It’s unbelievable how much money has gone into this school and they give no exceptions. The teachers are all shit and don’t care about the students passing, they’d honestly rather have you fail and have to retake it again. Don’t waste your time here seriously, Texas women’s university is 10x better than this place, hell a community college is better than this place. It’s like they want money so bad they won’t tell you the truth about anything just to get you to keep spending money. Ridiculous"

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2019
"They have no idea what they are doing, you get hoped from one department to another because they do not the information you are looking for. Or in my case, they give me two different answers which greatly screwed up my financial aid. If you didn't know don't give me an answer just to get me out of your office. Whenever I was told to go to my advisor for any reason, I dreaded it. I knew there was no information he would tell me that would be remotely helpful."

Urcelon Walker - 3/18/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"UTA Nursing program is a great program to consider. The school is very considerate of working moms and offers flexibility in how you can obtain your degree. You can opt for on-campus learning or on-line learning. You also have access to counselors that help keep you motivated and accountable. I actually had not registered for my courses. I had a counselor call me and tell me to log on right now so we can get you registered. I appreciated that because by registering, that began the final stretch I needed to complete my BSN. The only thing about the program I would change is all of the research papers required. I don't think this is specific to UTA, but rather, all nursing programs. I would like less papers and more clinical experiences and options."

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am here to tell you be careful if you were on academic suspension from a different college. You will have to sign and agree to not withdraw , cannot have F or D or below a 2.0. so basically even if you did the right thing you will be punished. Dismissal is what will happen. It's something I wish I had known before spendings 100s of dollars here. Another thing is that you will not get the right help from financial aid, because most of them are below the age of 20, and really don't give you good advice If you planning on coming to this university be prepared to be in financial debt, and spending money on parking ,about 3.75 an hour in the garage. Most of the students are uptight because it's UTA and not all of them are. You will end up graduating with a history or music degree just to finish there. The atmosphere is great and all but I guarantee you ,money speaks greatly there. I am currently at tcc and discovered other Texas have alot of courses from tcc that can greatly reduce your time at a university. Some are UNT,TWU, Wellesley, and more. Add a note, that's why they accept alot students it's because of money,money money ......"
