How much does New Start cost?
That depends on a number of factors: whether students are Arizona residents, whether they place into 6 or 7 units, whether they live in the dorm, and whether they qualify for a summer Pell Grant. Arizona residents will received reduced fees for the program and dorm. Arizona residents who complete the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 FAFSAs in a timely manner are eligible for New Start financial aid. Students who qualify for a summer Pell Grant, regardless of residency, have all direct costs of the program covered. Please note that New Start does not cover indirect costs: meals, transportation/parking, and any textbooks required for your classes (our instructors make every effort to keep book costs as low as possible!)
