UA Bridge

We strongly encourage students to join UA Bridge at least one semester before they apply to the University of Arizona.

The UA Bridge program is a partnership between several community colleges and the University of Arizona that provides a path to pursuing a bachelor’s degree at the University of Arizona, including UA North Valley. It provides a $2,000 renewable scholarship to eligible students for two consecutive years. Students must have 2.5 GPA cumulative GP and have at least 36 transfer credits and no more than 80 at time of application to be eligible. There is no cost for joining UA Bridge, so if you are even considering applying to the University of Arizona and one of its campuses, consider signing up for the Bridge program.
