New Start - New Student Orientation (June 16, 2020)

(Mandatory for all New Start students)

Students will attend their New Student Orientation during the New Start program. For summer 2021, the orientation will be held on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. During orientation, students will register for their Fall 2021 courses and learn about different opportunities on campus. All New Start students will be attending New Student Orientation on this day and should not attend orientation before the program. There is not a way for students outside of New Start to register for our orientation date. Students will be placed into this orientation date on June 16 by the New Student Orientation team after submitting the application. Orientation will be ONLINE this year.


Family and Advocate Orientation Information (June 16, 2021)

(Optional for parents, family members, and other student advocates)

We know that you as parents and advocates have a lot of questions about New Start and your student's first year at the University of Arizona. To make sure parents and advocates can still get the information they need to provide helpful and meaningful support for their students during the program, New Start partners with the office of Enrollment Services and New Student Orientation to offer a New Start Family and Advocate Orientation on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 during the student orientation session. At this program, you will learn more about what your student will experience in the fall semester, plus hear from campus partners like Parent and Family Programs, the Bursar’s Office, and the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to answer questions about your student becoming a UA Wildcat!

Up to two guests can sign up for Family/Advocate Orientation via the Next Steps Center.
