UTA provides Assistantships on a competitive basis to those students who have been accepted for full time PhD work. These assistantships are of two types:
        -Regular
        -Enhanced

Regular assistantships are received through the college and provide a stipend for 9 months but do not cover tuition.

Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistantships are available on a competitive basis to students beginning their first semester of study in UT Arlington doctoral or doctoral-bound programs. These packages may consist of some combination of Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistantships (EGTAs) with full tuition fellowships and grant-funded research assistantships that may include some tuition coverage. Requirements include 50% graduate teaching assistantship, full-time enrollment, and unconditional admission. Interested applicants should indicate interest on their Texas Common Application and in correspondence with the Major Field Coordinator of the program being applied for.

To indicate interest in these programs, prospective students and applicants can enter themselves into the database maintained by the Office of Graduate Studies by submitting the appropriate webform. OGS staff regularly forward the names and contact details that are stored in this database to the appropriate graduate advisors so that they can follow up and provide prospective students with program specific information.
