Starting college is a big step in your life, and we want to make sure that you are ready to take full advantage of your freshman year. The UAdvantage First-Year Experience combines a five-week summer program that allows you to get a 6-credit head start on your first year of college with peer advising that lasts your whole freshman year. You will learn what academic life is like at UA while supported by peer advisors, resident assistants, and tutors. UAdvantage also allows you to live in a residence hall before other freshmen even arrive on campus and gives you a comprehensive introduction to all UA has to offer so that when other freshmen are just learning the ropes, you’ll already feel like an expert. You’ll meet faculty and staff who are committed to your success and get to know your new home away from home – the UA campus and the city of Tucson.
