Welcome, Wildcats, to New Student Orientation
As you begin this exciting new chapter, you probably have questions. Don’t worry. That’s what your virtual orientation is all about. During your virtual orientation, you’ll explore academic offerings, learn about campus resources and departments, review your class schedule and more. Whether you need info on housing or you want to find out how to join an organization, orientation is your one-stop shop for everything you need to know to become a successful Wildcat.
In addition to the virtual sessions, we offer you a chance to participate in live and on-demand chats. Here, you can ask anything and everything about your transition to the University of Arizona. These chats help you learn how to navigate the university and introduce you to the Wildcat community.
Congrats! You’re about to embark on some of the best years of your life. To get ready for orientation, you will need to complete a few important tasks:
- Sign up for your virtual orientation session
- Pay the enrollment fee
- Complete placement exams
- Submit immunization records
- Submit any final high school or college transcripts
We’re happy you’ve chosen to join the Wildcat family to complete your college degree. The Transfer Student Orientation is a virtual experience specially designed with you in mind. Learn about transfer of credits, academic placement and the University of Arizona campus during your virtual session.
At the University of Arizona, we’re committed to your educational and personal success. You’ll find resources to help with this success both on and off campus, including academic advising, immigration support, academic support, merit-based scholarships and opportunities for friendship and community.
