CATS Forever

The University of Arizona
Former Student-Athlete Education Assistance Program

The University of Arizona Athletics Department has implemented a new program called Cats Forever. The mission of the Cats Forever program is to maximize resources to help former student-athletes who have not graduated to receive their degree. Other aspects of the program include leadership and personal development skills and involvement in alumni activities to establish life long relationships with other Letterwinners and the University.

There are two components to the Cats Forever Program:

Cats Forever Academic Assistance

The Cats Forever Academic Assistance area assists former student-athletes with admission, registration, transcripts, degree-check, books, tutoring and course evaluation in respect to the individual's graduation status. The Athletics Department is able to offer a limited amount of financial aid for student-athletes returning to the UA. Former student-athletes who are unable to attend the UA and enroll at another local college or university may also request assistance with academic transcripts, course evaluation, etc. The Intercollegiate Athletics Department does not financially assist those individuals who are not taking classes at the UA.

Cats Forever Career and Personal Development Assistance

This area assists former student-athletes in developing the skills necessary to be successful in the classroom. The program focus' on three main areas:

Enhancement: To expand the range of available coping skills to insure that former student-athletes are better prepared for returning to school.

Support: Provide social and emotional support during the academic, employment and transitional periods.

Counseling: Provide counseling for former student-athletes who may be having difficulty with the transition from playing their sport.

This program serves as an excellent way for the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics better serve former student-athletes and help them obtain their degrees.
