Our Study ARIZONA Visiting International Undergraduate Semester is an exciting opportunity for international students from any of our UA International Partner Institutions to come enroll in non-degree, undergraduate credit courses for one semester (fall or spring). The idea is to create an option for these students to study abroad in Tucson and experience all that the UA and Tucson have to offer while still maintaining ties to their home institutions.
The educational objective of this program is for students to interact with other cultures and improve their intercultural communication. To successfully complete this program, each student will take 4 or more courses in areas of interest maintaining a full-time status throughout the semester. Additionally, the student will meet cohort objectives for interaction and improved communication through a series of co-curricular activities. Successful completion of the program will result in a Certificate of Participation. Students will also be able to request an official UA transcript with their course grades.
Students will take classes at the UA main campus in Tucson with other UA students. Course choices are subject to availability and certain majors may not permit non-degree students to enroll in their classes (such as Eller, Journalism, and Nursing at this time). No specific course selections can be guaranteed.
To apply for this non-degree Study ARIZONA Program, applicants need to be students in good standing at their home institution, with whom we must have a current partnership agreement. Student candidates must meet all undergraduate admission and English proficiency requirements to enroll. To apply, students will need to upload their proof of English proficiency as well as university course transcripts (in English) and pay the $85 application fee.
The UA will provide the I-20 documentation for the F1 student visa. The student candidate must have a valid passport and provide a Financial Guarantee Letter, and pay all fees and tuition (or their scholarship sponsor). The Financial Guarantee Letter should prove that the student has funding (bank statements from checking or savings accounts, loan approval documents or scholarship letters) for at least $12,964. This amount shows the US government for the student's visa application approval that he/she has the financial resources to cover all program costs plus living expenses for the duration of the program.
Semester cost: tuition, fees, health insurance, housing is less than $10,000. This cost does not include visa expenses, food, travel, and some additional optional add-on options.
