We’re thrilled you’ve chosen to complete your undergraduate degree at the University of Arizona. As a transfer student, college isn’t new to you — you understand academic expectations, how to juggle workloads and the importance of deepening your social networks in meaningful ways. And while you may still be exploring what that perfect major looks like, you have a degree in your sights.
We’re here to help you with the information you need. It all starts with your virtual orientation experience during which you’ll attend virtual sessions that cover everything from academics at Arizona to student services and leadership programs.
You’ll also be introduced to University of Arizona offerings that are key to the success of transfer students in particular:
- Transfer Student Center
A “hangout” for transfer students with staff on hand to answer questions and to help make your transition to the University of Arizona smooth and successful. You’ll also get to meet other transfer students at hosted get-togethers and enjoy access to academic resources.
- Student Engagement and Career Development
This program offers professional development with interview workshops, on-campus jobs and career fairs.
- Veterans Education and Transition Services Center
For veterans, this center provides a thriving community of student veterans who have served our country and are now continuing their education.
Tutoring and supplemental instruction in three campus locations.
We want your transition to the University of Arizona to be a success from the start. These resources will help make your journey to becoming a Wildcat simple and fun.
