Complete the steps below to be evaluated for admission to the University of Arizona as a freshman.
Step 1Review Admissions Requirements
Students can earn admission to UA in two ways:
Students may earn admission to UA through the Assured Admission process if they are an Arizona resident, attend a regionally accredited high school, rank in the top 25 percent of their graduating class, and have no course work deficiencies as prescribed by the Arizona Board of Regents or earn a GPA of 3.0 or higher in their core coursework. You can view a detailed list of the course requirements on our ABOR Course Competencies page.
All students not considered Arizona residents and students who do not meet the above requirements for Assured Admission will be evaluated through our Comprehensive Review Process. You can view more details about Comprehensive Review on our Applicant Review Process page.
*A completed application form includes all self-reported grades through your 6th semester and courses in progress for initial admission consideration. You will need an unofficial high school transcript and/or access to your coursework in order to complete this section on the application. We will be verifying your coursework pending a final official transcript submission prior to the start of your freshman year at UA. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to review answers to commonly asked questions related to our self-reporting process.
Submit your official SAT/ACT scores to be considered for merit scholarships or the UA Honors College.
Ready to apply? Complete the application through our UA Future portal. You can also find us on the Coalition and Common Applications. After you apply, check your email for more information regarding how to track your application status.
Please do not send us your official high school transcripts at this time. We will use your self-reported grades on your application for initial evaluation and review for the admission decision. Your official transcripts will be required before you enroll at the University of Arizona. More information will be provided upon admission. In the meantime, check out these frequently asked questions.
Official college/university transcript(s)
If you've completed any college or university course work during or post-high school, you will be asked to submit any/all official college transcripts at enrollment.
