Steps for Freshman Spring Enrollment

You are strongly encouraged to take care of your enrollment steps as early as possible as the spring semester begins early in January. Ideally, you should have all your steps completed before the end of the fall semester.

Apply for Admission

Complete an Application for Admission.
Complete your application file (application fee, transcripts and scores):

•If you did not submit your application fee with your admission application, you can pay on My ASU. You can also mail a check or money order to ASU or call Undergraduate Admissions (480-965-7788) and pay with a debit or credit card (Visa or Mastercard).
•Ask each high school and college you have attended to send your official transcripts directly to ASU. Hand-delivered transcripts are not official.
•If your ACT or SAT score does not appear on your high school transcript, ask ACT or the College Board (SAT) to send your scores directly to ASU.
•If you are concurrently enrolled in high school and college courses, or if you are dually enrolled in college courses taught on your high school campus, you must request official transcripts from both your high school and the college offering the dual credit to be sent to ASU. ASU will not award college credit that appears only on high school transcripts.
•Upon graduation from high school or completion of your current college semester, request that a final transcript be sent from your school to ASU. Your final high school transcript must show your date of graduation.

Activate Accounts
After you have applied for admission, you will be issued an ASURITE ID, which will give you access to online student services, including those at My ASU, such as the ability to check your admission status. While you activate your ASURITE ID, be sure to set up your email address so you can receive important messages from ASU as the university uses this email address for official communications.

After Admission

Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships
ASU encourages all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA becomes available in January. ASU's priority date for submission is March 1. Students do not need to be admitted to ASU to submit a FAFSA and begin the process; however, only admitted students are awarded aid. Search and apply for scholarships that may fit your profile, talents and academic interests.

Note that Arizona law requires verification of citizenship or other lawful presence in the United States for all students who are receiving in-state tuition and/or financial aid funded by state money.

Next Steps for Admitted Freshmen

Select Housing and Dining
ASU expects first-time freshmen to live in the residential college of their major and guarantees housing to all first-time freshmen. Students who intend to live elsewhere during their first year should notify University Housing so we can connect them to valuable resources and support for their first year. To apply to live on campus or to notify us that you will be living elsewhere, please log in to the My Housing Portal and complete your housing intention.

Tuition is based on your residency for tuition purposes status. Note that Arizona law requires verification of citizenship or other lawful presence in the United States for all students who are receiving in-state tuition and/or financial aid funded by state money.
