Does my University Track GPA affect me once I’m fully admitted at the UA?
Yes. All of the grades you earn in your UA courses count towards your UA GPA. Although the grades in your CESL courses do not count towards your UA GPA, they will determine your progression through the U-Track. Please see the student handbook for more information.
If I AM CONDITIONALLY ADMITTED AND complete one session of the Undergraduate U-Track, will I be automatically admitted to the UA?
No. With conditional admission, there are three common ways to fulfill UA’s English language requirement for full admission:
a) Complete two sessions of the U-Track and receive CESL Endorsement with a 2.0 GPA (see http://www.cesl.arizona.edu/endorsement-students - students must pass all classes with a C or higher to receive endorsement).
b) Complete one session of the U-Track and receive CESL endorsement.with a 3.0 GPA (see http://www.cesl.arizona.edu/endorsement-students - students must pass all classes with a C or higher to receive endorsement).
c) Earn the required TOEFL or IELTS score (http://admissions.arizona.edu/how-to-apply/international/english-profici...).
In some cases, undergrad-bound tudents may also enroll in a non-credit (no university classes) option in levels 8 or 9. See http://www.cesl.arizona.edu/GraduateUniversityTrack or email Amber Tetreau-Segura at email@example.com . Undergrad-bound students will be advised to take the University Track option, which includes a credit-bearing course.
Do I have a UA email address (CatMail)?
Yes. Your email address is: yourNetID@email.arizona.edu
How do I log into CatMail?
Login with your UA NetID and password at the WebAuth log in window. The first time you log in to your account, Google will have you go through a confirmation page. After your first login, all future logins will take you directly to your account.
Can I get a CatCard?
Yes. To obtain your CatCard you must visit the CatCard Office located in the Student Union. Please be prepared with the following: A government or state issued photograph identification such as a driver's license, state identification card, or passport. High school issued identification is not accepted as valid identification. A completed and signed CatCard Terms and Conditions Form. Students and affiliates pay $25 for their first card. Please Note: When you apply for your CatCard, you will need to provide your UA student identification number to verify your status at the University of Arizona. This is not your CESL ID number.
If I was an IEP student and already have a CatCard, do I need to get a new one?
No. The CatCard office will automatically update your CatCard with your new U-Track student privileges.
Can I use UA’s recreation center?
Yes, but you must pay a fee. Stop by the front desk of the recreation center to pay the fee. After that, you may use your CatCard to enter the recreation center.
