Arizona Assurance Program
Message to our incoming Arizona Assurance Scholars, 4.7.2021
Hello incoming Arizona Assurance Scholars! We are so excited to work with you and to be able to offer support and resources. To begin your UA journey, we strongly recommend our AZA students participate in the New Start Summer Program. By participating in New Start you will take 6-7 units of credit, meet incoming 1st year students, develop a network of friends, peer mentors, tutors, and professional staff. As an AZA student and Pell grant recipient you are also eligible for the New Start Pell Promise. Which means your direct costs are covered (tuition and fees) and you can assist in meeting your AZA program requirements even earlier! Mark your calendars for for an unforgettable summer!
