Admissions University Of Arizona
Undergraduate Application Process
- Online Application: To apply, you must complete the online application form. This requires you to submit academic transcripts, as well as proof of English proficiency if you are not a native speaker of English. You will also need to provide personal information such as your Social Security number and birthday (this is used for identification purposes). The University of Arizona accepts both the Common Application and the Coalition Application. The Common App has been adopted by more than 700 colleges and universities, including most public institutions in Arizona. Since this makes it easy for students who plan on applying to multiple schools, we recommend using this application when applying to UA if possible. As part of your application fee, you will be required to pay a $60 nonrefundable processing fee (this can be waived under certain circumstances).
The University of Arizona’s deadlines are as follows:
- Applications must be submitted by March 1 for fall admission.
- Transcripts must be submitted by June 1 for fall admission.
- ACT or SAT scores should be received no later than July 31, but can also be sent directly to the university if you do not use ETS as a test sending center.
- Letters of recommendation should arrive no later than July 31 and are considered on a rolling basis until August 20; they cannot arrive after this date. However, you may have letters submitted earlier in the process (by May 1) if your other materials indicate that it will take longer than usual for them to reach us before our deadline. Also note that letters of recommendation from teachers/professors are not required unless there is something significantly outstanding about your academic record which requires further explanation from someone who knows you well as an individual outside of class settings such as extra-curricular activities; additionally, letters should come from instructors who know about the courses taken at their institution rather than just transcripts alone since these two things often do not match up perfectly due to different grading systems being used across states or countries along with how many transfer credits were awarded after transferring from another school into one here at UA! Also note that while we do accept some recommendations through email attachments sent through programs like Dropbox etc., we prefer paper copies mailed directly via postal service so make sure those arrive early enough so they’re still fresh in our minds when making admissions decisions.”
Transfer students are welcome to apply to the University of Arizona. In order to be considered for admission, transfer students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 and completed at least 12 credit hours of college credit with an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher
Transfer students must have completed at least 12 credit hours of college credit with an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher at a regionally accredited institution.
Veterans Services and Military Resources
- Veterans Services and Military Resources:
- The University of Arizona’s Office of Admissions has a dedicated team of military counselors who are trained to help veterans, active duty military members and their families with the application process. The team is available to address any concerns or questions you may have throughout your time as an applicant.
- Development Opportunity Fund (DOF): This program awards scholarships based on need and merit in order to assist eligible veterans who wish to attend college at UA. There are also other educational benefits available for eligible veterans, including tuition assistance and housing allowances for off-campus students.
International Applicants for Undergraduate Admission
International students must have a TOEFL score of at least 100.
- -The ACT and SAT are not required for international applicants, but they are required for domestic applicants. This means that students who wish to attend UA as an international student must take the same tests as domestic students in order to be considered for admission.
Incoming A-G High School Students
- Incoming A-G High School Students
- must be in good standing
- must be currently enrolled at an accredited high school or have graduated from an accredited high school.
- must have a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and meet the University of Arizona admission requirements by submitting official transcripts of all secondary school work as well as results of either the ACT or SAT (with essay). Students will be considered for admission if they have completed all of their general education requirements, including English composition and mathematics; they also will need to demonstrate proficiency in reading and writing because these skills are essential for success at the university level.
College Credit Plus (CCP)
College Credit Plus is a program that allows students to earn college credits at a reduced cost through partnerships with community colleges and other higher education institutions. If you are interested in participating in this program, please see the Arizona Board of Regents website for more information: https://www.arizona.edu/accreditation-resources/programs/college-credit-plus
Who is eligible? You must be an enrolled high school student at an Arizona public or nonpublic school to participate in College Credit Plus. To enroll, you must have completed your junior year of high school with at least 3 academic years remaining by the time you graduate from high school (or grade 12). You must also meet college readiness standards as outlined by ACT or SAT scores and take an admissions test aligned with your desired major after your first semester of enrollment (for example, if you’re interested in History and want to start taking courses in Fall 2019, you would need to take the ACT or SAT sometime during 2020).
Graduate Admissions Process
The Graduate Admissions Process
The graduate application process for the University of Arizona can be broken down into six steps:
- Apply online. If you prefer to complete your application electronically, you’ll need to use the Common Application (the most common form used by schools that don’t have their own) or the Coalition Application (for students who are members of a specific academic organization). Both applications will work with any school that uses either system. You can also apply through snail mail if you want, but it’s more expensive and slower than applying online and costs $45 per program (credit hours). You’ll pay an additional fee when submitting documentation such as transcripts and recommendations by regular mail or fax. Some programs may require supplemental materials like portfolio submissions as well—check each program’s website for specific requirements before submitting your application.
- Submit supporting documents by email or regular mail once they’re ready; they won’t be processed until they’re received in our office!
