Summer On Campus

 

Experience College - Live On Campus during the Summer

You don’t have to wait until freshman year to stay on campus and attend college classes. With Summer On Campus, you will live in a residence hall, walk the Quad, make great friends and take two college courses at UA.  And you’ll have the same strong support network you experience in your online courses – peer coaches who live in your residence hall, academic advisors, and student-centered instructors.

We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to learn about college life – like meeting with representatives from student organizations, Student Affairs, Fraternity & Sorority Life, University Admissions, and college advisors. And we’ll also provide plenty of social opportunities like fun days at the lake, study groups at the library, swimming and climbing the rock wall at the University Recreation Center, and meals and events with the broader UA Early College family.
