How to apply


Students can earn admission to UA in two ways:

  • Students may earn admission to UA through the Assured Admission process if they are an Arizona resident, attend a regionally accredited high school, rank in the top 25 percent of their graduating class, and have no course work deficiencies as prescribed by the Arizona Board of Regents or earn an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher in their core coursework. 
  • All students not considered Arizona residents and students who do not meet the above requirements for Assured Admission will be evaluated through our Comprehensive Review Process.


  • A completed application form* Payment of application fee

A completed application form includes all self-reported grades through your 6th semester and courses in progress for initial admission consideration. You will need an unofficial high school transcript and/or access to your coursework in order to complete this section on the application. We will be verifying your coursework pending a final official transcript submission prior to the start of your freshman year at UA.


Official high school transcript(s)
Please do not send us your official high school transcripts at this time. We will use your self-reported grades on your application for initial evaluation and review for the admission decision. Your official transcripts will be required before you enroll at the University of Arizona. More information will be provided upon admission.


Submitting your official SAT/ACT scores is optional for admissions consideration. However, test scores are REQUIRED in order to be considered for merit scholarships, the UA Honors College, the College of Nursing, or the College of Engineering.

As of March 2016 the College Board has issued a redesigned SAT. The University of Arizona will accept the previous test scores for years to come.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
