How do I apply?  

You’ll want to get started by exploring our degree programs and looking up how your previously earned credits transfer to the University of Arizona. Once you’re ready to apply, your application will include official high school and college transcripts and GED scores, depending on your status; payment of an application fee (fee waivers are available based on financial need); and proof of English proficiency, if required. 

Apply online and remember to select your desired major.  

Lower Your Cost to Attend 

The estimated cost to attend the university depends largely on whether you’re a resident or non-resident and whether you plan to live on campus, off campus paying rent, or live with a parent rent free. You can lower your cost through scholarships and financial aid, and tuition savings programs, such as the Western Undergraduate Exchange Tuition Savings Program.  

You can use our net price calculator to estimate your scholarships and aid eligibility, and total cost.
