Thank you for your interest in New Start! The application for Summer 2024 is now open!

New Start provides 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 '23 or May '24, you may to apply for our program. Some key benefits of New Start are:

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

New Start 2024 will happen on the University of Arizona Campus from Saturday, June 8 to Friday, July 19, 2024. Classes begin on June 10!

To apply, first gain admission to UArizona for Fall 2024, then return to Future Wildcat (where you applied to UA) and find us under the "Supplemental Applications" tab. If you have any questions along the way, we're here to help!

See you in the summer!
