    CATS Forever Program

    UA Department of Intercollegiate Athletics

    Former Student-Athlete Education Assistance Program

    The mission of the CATS Forever program is to assist former Arizona student-athletes in fulfilling the goal of graduation for those who left school before receiving their undergraduate degree.

    In 2014, the Athletics Department evaluated the program and was able to expand it based on deregulations of NCAA policies.  Now the CATS Forever Program is able to help former student-athletes with financial assistance. 

    There are three components to the CATS Forever Program:

    Academic Assistance

    The Athletics Department can provide academic assistance to former student-athletes with regard to admission, registration, transcripts, degree-check, academic support and course evaluation in respect to the individual’s graduation status. Former student-athletes who are unable to attend the UA and enroll at another local college or university may also request academic assistance with academic transcripts, course evaluations, etc.

    Personal Development Assistance

    The Athletics Department has staff who can assist former student-athletes in developing the skills necessary to be successful in the classroom and after graduation. The program focuses on three main areas:
