  • I took my girlfriend and 6 year old to the Planetarium as the 6 year old is showing great interest in astronomy. He loved the whole experience.  more »
  • It has lots of things to see and is great for school kids to go to for a field trip. It is a good place to go see the items they have in there.  more »

  • I would not call myself a proud Alumni of this school. I’ve had constant run-ins with their difficult parking, especially at the garage near the College Park Center. I remember my early years attending parking was free after a certain time, or on weekends; Now you need a year round permit. Moreover construction is horrible. Usually you will find yourself in a battle to find parking during the daytime (morning commuters are lucky).This campus is money hungry with not much to offer for all students unless your athletic or possibly within the 10% of your graduating high school class. Jobs are even more scarce to find on campus if you’re looking for a work-study program. I could go on and on and list the certain negatives of this school, but you can on your own accord and experience. I can only say the best thing about this school is the program I received my degree from.
  • UTA is so underrated; the quality of education you get for the price you pay can’t be beat any where on NTX. I graduated with an abundance of great memories from the college of business (operations management). I would highly recommend this school to anyone; it’s very possible to graduate from UTA without debt.
  • Here’s a little summary about my issue: went to UTA after TCC for 2 semesters. Had a low gpa so I was on academic probation. After academic probation my account was deactivated because admissions had me only for 2 semesters (never heard of such thing) so I had to REapply and pay $70. So after that, I have ANOTHER academic block, why would I have one when I just served my academic probation. Okay I get that cleared but now I have a advising block on my account. Ok, so I get that cleared but I miss the Fall registration due to UTA being very slow to responses. Okay my advisor says I’m clear to register and sign up classes for Spring. Oh, but admissions deactivated my account AGAIN because I didn’t sign up for Fall. Ok, well thanks for noticing me 1 day before winter break when everyone is off so now I have to wait another 3 weeks when the UTA website says “if your account is not activated in 30 days, your account will be deleted.” Thank you UTA for giving me so much stress and depression. When all I wanted to do was just go to school. Thank you UTA. THANK YOU.
  • If I could give this school no stars for the rating I would. The school is a money-hungry establishment. The parking department is the worst I have ever heard off, they barely give scholarships to in-state students (I have no problem with giving international students scholarships, I just wish they would give in-state as well because we all need it). Classes are unnecessarily hard for a school with little to no credentials. Goodluck, I am sure you will have a great time in this school. MAV UP!! :-)
  • Admissions screening is very slow. My daughter applied for UTA in September. The first call we were told the application was stuck in the system and it would only take 3 business days to get application through the screening. Mid November now and they are still reviewing Spring of 2018 applications as we have been told every time we call. The call center gives the same canned answer and offers no resolution. Not very efficient when a student is trying to line up their plans for after graduation
