Guaranteed Tuition Program

Beginning in the Fall 2015 semester, UA South students will have the option to participate in a Guaranteed Tuition Program. The Guaranteed Tuition Program is the University of Arizona’s commitment to provide students with a constant tuition and mandatory fee rate, as set by the Arizona Board of Regents for eight (8) continuous semesters (summer and winter sessions excluded), beginning with the term of an undergraduate student’s initial enrollment at the UA. Since the average time to degree for UA South students is five (5) semesters, we encourage students to discuss their options with their Student Services Coordinator or Academic Advisor before opting into the program. Frequently asked questions about the Guaranteed Tuition Program can also be found here:

To opt-in to the UA South Guaranteed Tuition program, complete the Opt-In Form and submit it in person to your local UA South office or email it to before the first day of classes of your first term at UA South. Only new students may opt-in at this time; continuing students are no longer eligible to opt-in to the Guaranteed Tuition program.
