UT Arlington’s MAVERICK PROMISEv4-mascot-full

For the academic year, UT Arlington will provide grant assistance to cover all fall and spring in-state tuition and fees for undergraduate Texas residents who have a family income of $65,000 or less, after Federal Pell Grant and other financial aid have covered costs, and who are admitted and complete the financial aid application process including all required forms by April 1 (each year).

Students who apply for financial aid after this date and meet the other conditions listed will be awarded grant assitance on a funds available basis.  Students may be eligible for additional funds through loans and the Fedearl Work Study program to cover additional educational expenses such as textbooks and room & board.

Maverick Promise Criteria
Students must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be an undergraduate student paying the in-state tuition rate.
  • Be admitted to UT Arlington by April 1
  • Complete and submit all financial aid application forms so that they will be received in the Office of Financial Aid by April 1
  • Have a family of $65,000 or less.
  • Be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant.
  • Maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at UT Arlington.

Through the Maverick Promise, UT Arlington will provide grant assistance to students to cover the cost of tuition and fees to students meeting the criteria above.  The difference between the Federal Pell Grant award and the total tuition and fee cost will be paid through a combination of other federal, state, and/or institutional grant sources.

The Maverick Promise is open to all undergraduates UTA students who are enrolled at least half time (6 credit hours).  Students may renew the Maverick Promise if they continue to meet the conditions outlined and meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements outlined by UTA.  New freshmen students are eligible for the Maverick Promise for up to 5 years and new transfer students are eligible for up to 3 years.

    I was wondering what steps I needed to tale for the maverick promise. If I meet all the requirements do I need to fill out a specific application or would I be notified without an application.

    Good morning,
    I was wondering if the Maverick promise is still in place. I have a student that was offered CAP by UT in Austin. And she’s trying to make a decision. Thank you.
