STAR: Successful Transition and Academic Readiness
Jump-start your university experience with the NAU STAR program
The Successful Transition and Academic Readiness (STAR) program ensures new freshmen who are Arizona residents a successful transition from high school into college. This summer’s STAR program will take place virtually with remote learning, virtual mentoring, and virtual programming.
In just over four weeks during the summer prior to the fall semester, you will take two classes totaling six credit hours that will fulfill liberal studies requirements and apply toward your undergraduate degree. You will get to know other new students, participate in peer mentoring, learn about NAU and the resources through virtual programming, and connect with one another and the STAR Program staff through virtual engagement activities. In the fall, you will arrive early to get to know the campus, our resources, one another, and the many opportunities available to you at NAU.
