Getting Started

During the virtual orientation session, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about your new life on the University of Arizona campus. But before you can sign up for orientation, there are a handful of essential to-dos to cross off your list.

First things first: Visit the Next Steps Center. Here, you’ll be asked to set up your NetID, which is your personal identifier used for important services at the University of Arizona. (Note: You must set up your personal device with the NetID+ / Duo Mobile service as well!)

Once you have your NetID and password (and have enrolled in NetID+), you’ll have access to the Next Steps Center and all of the details you’ll need to get prepped for orientation.

New Student Checklist

The Next Steps Center makes it simple for your student to get Wildcat ready. Here’s a checklist of the high-priority tasks to complete — all accessible in the Next Steps Center — before orientation:

  • Pay your enrollment fee.
  • Submit immunization records.
  • Send final high school or college transcripts.
  • Complete the Math, Second Language and Writing placements! Do your best, but don’t stress!
  • Complete the "Countdown to Orientation" module (Available 2 weeks before orientation day!)
