Pre-Orientation Tasks

Your New Student Orientation: Transfer Transition Program is coming up! We are excited for your arrival and to ensure everything goes smoothly, we ask you take a look at the following list of tasks.

You should have received a confirmation Email to all registered Email accounts (your UA Email included) with your scheduled date. If you did not receive this Email and have paid the confirmation fee, please contact us.

Once you've received your Email with your scheduled date and listed major, please see the tasks below. By visiting this check list, you help us make your New Student Orientation: Transfer Transition Program a great one!

Traveling to UA & Parking

Please print out a parking permit and display it on the dashboard of your vehicle. This permit is good at any lot or deck designated for commuter passes.

Please refer to our travel information page for parking instructions, a link to the current permit and more information.

Verify Your Major

We want to ensure your experience with us is worry-free! Ensuring that the major listed in your Advising & Registration confirmation Email is correct is important. This being incorrect can impact your scheduled date. If the major listed in the Email is incorrect, please fill out the following form. We will communicate any changes to your Advising & Registration Program if they occur.

Your Day On Campus

Your half-day on campus will include information from the Transfer & Adult Student Enrollment Center, an academic advising appointment to schedule your classes, the Gold & Blue Preview with important UA-specific information, and a campus tour. You will also receive your student ID card, your Zip Card. 

You will have time to talk to additional offices and services on campus, so come prepared to handle any other tasks you seek to complete.
