About Us

UA South—the University of Arizona’s branch campus headquartered in Sierra Vista—extends the University’s educational mission to the region’s people, in multiple locations and with targeted degree programs. UA South provides affordable, accessible opportunities to earn high-quality and meaningful University of Arizona degrees in sites throughout Southern Arizona, including key border communities in Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties. We partner with community colleges to offer bachelor degrees that are of high quality, low cost, and geographically accessible. In addition to traditional degree programs in education, computer science, humanities and the social sciences, UA South offers Bachelor of Applied Science programs, Master’s programs in education, and a variety of continuing education programs designed to meet the workforce needs of regional industry.The University of Arizona will continue to increase access to degree programs that are relevant to students and to the communities in which they live. Meeting this need is at the core of UA South’s mission throughout Southern Arizona, and in particular in Cochise, Santa Cruz and Southeastern Pima Counties. We aim to renew continually our commitment to collaborate with the region’s school districts and community colleges, to innovate using technology, to enhance student learning and program availability.
