Welcome to the Maverick Transfer Connection Blog!

So, you transferred to UT Arlington or you’re thinking about submitting the application. Well, this blog is for you!

The Maverick Transfer Connection was created as an online community on Blackboard in fall 2015 to help all current and prospective UT Arlington transfer students transition successfully to UTA. Through Blackboard, we are able to provide E-tutoring, instant messaging, general advising, webinars and more for transfer students throughout the first year of transition.  We provide online and on-campus programs for transfer students by former transfer students. We call them Transition Leaders and they will be your guide through the transition process from applying to UT Arlington, to becoming an official Maverick and beyond.

Current UT Arlington Transfer Students are automatically enrolled in the Maverick Transfer Connection once they have attended a New Maverick Orientation. Prospective students can communicate with Transition Leaders through our blog, social media or email.

If you are a transfer student and have not been able to access the Maverick Transfer Connection on Blackboard, then send an email from your MavMail account with your name and student ID information (10 digit number; starts with 100) to transferconnection@uta.edu.

Check back regularly for posts from Transition Leaders Skyler and Marcus as they share their transfer experiences and transfer tips.

Points of Transition: Nada Atieh

This semester the Maverick Transfer Connection is hosting a series of talks we call Points of Transition.  The theme of the series centers around change, transition and the transfer student experience.

In January, UTA Alumna Nada Atieh gave a thought provoking talk in which she urged students to focus on the big picture of life beyond the university. The Shorthorn released a short article with information about Nada Atieh. Read it here and join the conversation on Twitter @UTATransfer and #UTATransfer.
