Welcome to the New Start Summer Program!
A Message from the Director of New Student Experiences...
At the University of Arizona, you’ll discover opportunities you won’t find anywhere else! This is where you will align your passion with your education as you make your mark on the world. The New Start Summer Program is a way for you to get a jump-start on everything we have to offer. As a New Start student, you will take 6-7 units of academic coursework, putting you half a semester ahead of the game before other freshmen ever arrive on campus. And while this is reason enough to participate, New Start is so much more!
For more than 49 years, students have started their journey to a UA degree with New Start. Through academic skills workshops, tutoring, and a comprehensive introduction to the University, New Start prepares you to take full advantage of every opportunity available to you as a New Start student. You will have access to leadership development opportunities, service projects, and social events during your six-week experience. Plus, you will create a network of peers - many of whom will become your best friends - as well as connections to peer advisors, instructors, and other staff here to help you succeed. But the best part of all? You’ll create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime!
Join more than 13,000 New Start alumni and be ready to hit the ground running once the fall semester starts in August!
Apply by May 1. And if you have questions about the New Start Summer Program, let us know.
We look forward to welcoming you on June 10th!
