Thank you for your interest in New Start! The application for Summer 2023 is now OPEN!

New Start works to give you a smooth, comprehensive transition to the University of Arizona the summer before your first year! If you are an Arizona high school senior graduating in December '22 or May '23, you may to apply for our program when the application opens later this fall. Some key benefits of New Start are:

  • The ability to earn 6-7 credits before fall even begins
  • The ability to gain knowledge of the university layout and resources during a time when campus is quiet
  • A peer mentor and coordinated network of support who will have your back!
  • The chance to experience dorm life during the summer (please note that a dorm space is not guaranteed.)

New Start 2023 will take place between Saturday, June 10 and Friday, July 21, 2023.

To apply, first gain admission to UArizona for Fall 2023, then return to Future Wildcat (where you applied to UA) and click "supplemental applications!" If you have any questions along the way, we're here to help!

See you this summer,

The New Start Team
