If I’m already a UA student and opt-in, how many semesters of the Guaranteed Tuition Program do I get?
Students who elect to opt-in will receive the Guaranteed Tuition Program through their eighth semester of total enrollment at the UA starting with the Fall 2014 term.
Students who opt-in will be charged the difference between the Guaranteed Tuition Program and the Non- Guaranteed Tuition Program rate they were charged for both Fall 2014 and Spring 2015.
In semesters nine and ten they will pay the 2015/16 Guaranteed Tuition Program rate. Starting the eleventh semester these students will pay the current non-Guaranteed Tuition Program rate. If a student decides to cancel their “opt-in”, he or she needs to contact the Registrar’s Office before the close of business on 8/21/15. Once again, the Guaranteed Tuition Program is the University of Arizona’s only tuition rate for new undergraduate UA Main Campus students.

How does participation in study abroad or National Student Exchange affect someone paying the Guaranteed Tuition Program rate?
Students participating in National Student Exchange or UA Study Abroad with enrollment through the University of Arizona will retain their original Guaranteed Tuition Program rate. However, the semesters in which you are enrolled in these programs count toward your eight semester total.
Students who complete two or more consecutive regular semesters of exchange or study abroad by enrolling through an institution other than the University of Arizona will lose their original Guaranteed Tuition Program rate and will be placed into the prevailing Guaranteed Tuition Program rate in effect at the time of their return to the UA main campus. Students pursuing this course of study should work with an academic advisor to explore an Undergraduate Leave of Absence.
