The Summer On Campus application will open to current UA Early College students on February 1, 2020.

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, an overnight staff member, our student success coordinator, summer programs coordinator, 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 and campus areas. And we’ll also provide plenty of social opportunities like stadium tours, movie and game nights, meals and events with UA organizations and speakers, and study groups at the library.

See our Summer On Campus cost breakdown for more information about housing, courses, and the overall cost.

*Students who are high school seniors are still eligible to participate in Summer On Campus post-high school graduation.

How to Spend Your Summer On Campus!

For those of you who planned to apply to our Summer On Campus program, we regret to inform you we will no longer be hosting it for 2020. We do not feel 2020 students can experience Summer On Campus as it is meant to be experienced with on-campus courses, study hall, academic exploration events and many social activities. Please know online courses are still available, and we recommend students take full advantage of the opportunity to immerse yourself in one or more of the many course offerings.

*The UA Early College and Summer On Campus application are two separate applications.

  • Students must apply and be admitted to UA Early College – Application Steps
  • Pass the UAEC 200: College Readiness Course
  • Complete the Summer On Campus application – Available through Early College Student Resources (ECSR) in Blackboard Learn once the UAEC 200 class is complete. There is no fee for the Summer On Campus application. 

Summer Terms

** Due to current events, summer full term, Summer I, and Summer II classes will only be available online.

Summer is split into two terms (Summer I and Summer II), each four weeks long:

  • Summer I Term – May 26 to June 27, 2020
  • Summer II Term – June 29 to August 1, 2020

Course Options

Summer On Campus students take classes alongside other UA students. Students are strongly encouraged to communicate with their UAEC academic advisor when choosing courses.
