Change of Campus
Changes To/ From UA Online
Students may change from a degree or certificate program offered on one of the physical UA campuses (e.g., UA Main, UA South) to a UA Online degree program or vice versa if this change will enhance their ability to make progress toward a University of Arizona degree. Circumstances that would warrant a change to/from UA Online include, but are not limited to, a physical relocation, a change of academic program to one that's not offered by that campus, or the need for more flexibility due to work, family or other pressures. A change such as this ordinarily occurs infrequently during a student's undergraduate career or during a student's graduate career.
Students changing to/from UA Online (ONLN) should be carefully advised of the implications for such a change, since there are many considerations, including course selection, tuition and fees, financial aid, etc.
- Undergraduates. The academic advisor for the program offered by the new campus must initiate the Change of Campus request for the student. Those requests are processed by the Registrar's Office.
- Graduate students. For students wishing to change the campus but NOT the degree/certificate program, the academic program coordinator or director of graduate studies for the program must initiate the Change of Campus request. Those requests are processed by the Graduate College. Graduate students wishing to change campus AND the degree/certificate program must reapply, using the Graduate Admissions Application, GradApp.
Note: Students enrolled in UA Online may only register for courses offered by UA Online. UA Online courses are restricted to UA Online students.
Changes Between UA Physical Campuses
Students interested in changing their primary campus--the campus offering their degree program--should see the academic advisor for the program at the new campus (e.g., UA South, UA Distance, UA Main) to discuss the implications of such a change. There is no limit on changes between physical campuses. However, there may be restrictions on taking classes from more than one physical campus at a time (i.e., during a single semester or term). Changes to/from UA South are processed in UA South-Student Services.
