UTA Expands Recruiting

University of Texas at Arlington recently announced ApplyUTA, an initiative to identify and assist exceptional college-ready students in the Latino community interested in enrolling at UTA for the 2016-17 school year.

Maria Martinez-Cosio, UTA assistant vice provost for Faculty Affairs, addresses members of the news media as ApplyUTA is announced at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Through ApplyUTA, students will have an opportunity to meet in-person with UTA faculty and staff knowledgeable about the recruitment, admissions, and financial aid process at a series of upcoming events on and off-campus.

'We believe in giving excellence every opportunity to succeed, and we want to partner with the Latino community, businesses and others to let Hispanic high school students in our region know that if they want to make their dreams of attaining a college education a reality, we're here to help them,' said UTA President Vistasp M. Karbhari. Community events focused on ApplyUTA will be held soon in Arlington, Carrollton-Farmer's Branch, Fort Worth, Garland, Grand Prairie, Irving, Lewisville and Plano.
