Complete the two enrollment steps in the checklist before May 1, 2024 to reserve a spot in our academic support program. Spots are limited!

Every year around April 1st, the SALT Center reaches its maximum capacity and starts a waiting list. We strongly recommend that SALT Center candidates submit a complete application and finish our enrollment steps by this date to have the best chance of avoiding the waiting list.

1.  SUBMIT a SALT Center New Student Participation Agreement

Access the SALT Center's New Student Participation Agreement in the Eligible to Enroll email you received. The agreement must be submitted in order to officially reserve your place in the SALT Center for the academic year.

Please note that by enrolling in the SALT Center you are agreeing to:

(1) participate for a minimum of two consecutive semesters

(2) pay a program fee for academic support services

Important Note: After submitting your New Student Participation Agreement, a SALT Center enrollment fee of $200 will be charged to your Bursar’s account. The SALT Center enrollment fee also covers the cost of the SALT Center New Student Enrollment Event.

Expect the SALT Center program fee to be billed to your UA Bursar’s account in July.

Virtual enrollment event details

  • The SALT Center Enrollment Event will be a ‘virtual live’ event, meaning that the session will be presented to you in real time. 
  • You will be emailed a link to a Zoom Meeting Registration form to RSVP for the date you previously selected in your UA Next Steps Center. Both the student and at least one parent/supporter are required to attend and both must RSVP separately. The link to access the virtual enrollment event will be emailed to you upon completion of this form.
  • Students and Parent/Supporter(s) will need to login to the session separately, so you will need at least two devices to attend. 
  • Upon completion of the session, an email will be sent asking for an additional form to be completed. Receipt of this form will indicate full completion of the session.

Transfer & Current Students

This Enrollment Event is conducted in August before the start of classes. Details will be sent to you via email.
