How to become an RTIP student

Undergraduate

Applying to the UA College of Agriculture & Life Sciences is the first step on the road to becoming an RTIP student.

The Bachelor of Science degree is a four-year program. Students transferring in credits from other colleges or universities may be able to complete the degree in a shorter amount of time.

Admission requirements for the RTIP are the same for the University of Arizona, and will be filed as general admission into the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences as an Animal Science major. Admissions information is found on the UA's website.

Transferring to the UA is a similar process to the freshmen application, but will require you to send additional transcripts, test scores, and meet different deadlines. For more information, please see the Office of Admissions transfer information.
