Welcome to the New Start Summer Program!

Join us online for New Start 2021!

We are looking forward to meeting the new generation of New Start students. Our team is currently planning for a primarily online experience for summer 2021. This means all classes and mandatory components of the program will be held remotely. We are reintroducing the on-campus housing option as well as Peer Mentoring as an in-person option, as well as social programming in the afternoons. We look forward to welcoming students who are ready to transition into an on-campus experience, however you will not be required to come to campus this summer.

As a New Start participant you can expect these benefits:

  • A strong academic headstart to your UA career, including 6-7 units of credit;
  • Full funding for tuition and mandatory fees if you are Pell eligible at half-time enrollment (please budget for online learning materials and inclusive access fees, or roughly $80);
  • A friendly network of support including a tutor, peer mentors, seasoned student coordinators, and full-time professional staff;
  • Access to engaging virtual programs on campus/community resources and interesting topics!

This will be our 53rd year of New Start, and while our program is rich with many years of history and memories, there is only one New Start 2021! Join our community and become a part of the tradition. Our application will launch in November for all incoming first-year AZ residents who will be starting at UA directly out of high school in fall 2021. Mark your calendars for June 12 to July 23 for an unforgettable summer! We can't wait to meet you!

Be well and Bear Down!
