"My son was a 2020 high school graduate who went to a four year college. With Covid, that meant fully online for the first year from home. By the second year he was used to this and wanted to continue to go online for the flexibility it offered. Midway through his sophomore year he transferred out of state to UofA online as the four year college couldn't see him through to graduation online. UofA was great at first, very helpful with the application process and the first semester of counseling. And then the great advisor switched positions and he was left to a new advisor who was terrible. After 2 months of back and forth with her via email (and looping in the previous advisor after a month of this craziness) he still didn't have answers to very basic questions (which class to take to satisfy a particular requirement needed - she told him it changes each semester but not what it was for the current semester!- and being told spots were added for a class he needed but weren't there when he looked. She told him to go take it at a Phoenix community college instead!). Certain classes are only offered in the first or 2nd half of the semester (they run two 7 week sessions of classes per semester), which left him with a gap where he could only find 1 class to take for the first 7 weeks. They claimed he would get through just as fast as a 4 year school, but he lost almost 2 semesters worth of work when he transferred, and was only allowed to take a total of 4 classes each semester vs. 5 at a university. By our calculations it would take him 6 years (not going summers) to graduate after being in school already for 2.5 years. When faced with a $6K tuition to take only Spanish 101 the first 7 weeks, then Spanish 201 and another class the 2nd 7 weeks, we decided to go the community college route. That Spanish 101 class was not going to be worth $3K! We felt like it was more about stringing him along to get the tuition than helping him find his way. As a parent I am VERY disappointed. While this may be fine for working adults, they are not set up to help younger students looking for an online option. I would think twice about throwing your money away on this program."

"Hi, my name is Jacob DeMartini and I am currently a freshman at the University of Arizona. My experience here is like no other. Coming from Huntington Beach, California to Tuscon, Arizona has been life changing. If you are person like me who wants to get out of their community bubble then the University of Arizona could be a great place for you. School spirit here is big. From the football field to the basketball court our division one teams will make you start saying bear down. I am a pre-business major and the eller program at the school is one of the best in the country. There is a lot of on campus free tutoring provided to the students. Thank you for taking time to read about my experience at the University of Arizona. Bear Down!"

"As a transfer student, I really struggled with the transition from community college to university life. The quality of instruction, nor the students were all that different, but the process itself was much more complex. Registration at the University of Arizona is absolutely awful. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus. I began in the Sciences and found that although many of the professors were brilliant, they were highly disorganized, making their subjects unnecessarily complicated. I eventually transferred into the Eller College of Management and was thrilled at how helpful they were. They guide you not only through the classes, but through extracurricular activities, honors, the job search, and onward. I was impressed with the consistent responsiveness of the administrative staff. The University of Arizona is a great school overall, but with its large size, I would do my best to know your learning style best you can before arriving so you can navigate through the system with ease."
