About Us

We are the University of Arizona Online

Arizona Online is the online campus of the University of Arizona. We offer undergraduate and graduate level degrees and certificates 100% online. We are dedicated to providing online courses that are just as rigorous and challenging as our on-campus classes.

The team at Arizona Online provides full-service support to students, staff and faculty at all phases of a degree program’s evolution. We work closely with colleges and faculty to develop, onboard and market degree programs.  Arizona Online will also support our students every step of the way through their academic journey with resources for enrollment and advising.

With content, video, design, development, and digital advertising specialists, the marketing team provides strategic digital marketing opportunities for your programs.


Arizona Online’s enrollment team is a modern recruitment center with over 25 full-time enrollment counselors engaging prospective students immediately after their expressed interest. Using our CRM tool, Slate, and a dialer strategy, prospects will have continuous and consistent outreach as they progress toward enrollment.  

Student Success

Student Academic Success Specialists (SASS) are advisors who act as a "one-stop-shop" for the students, providing access to resources, planning classes and supporting them through until graduation.

Corporate Partnerships

The Arizona Online corporate initiatives team provides a direct enrollment channel to working adults on a regional, national and international level and capitalizes on existing tuition assistance programs within organizations. This, combined with tuition reductions, creates a strong incentive for enrollment. The corporate initiative extends the UArizona brand beyond the physical barriers of Tucson through association with prominent local, regional and national companies.
