Admitted next steps

Your next steps

  1. Pay your enrollment deposit.

    Upon admission, first-time freshmen pay an enrollment deposit. The deposit may be paid on My ASU beginning October 1.

  2. Join devil2devil on My ASU.

    Why wait for fall to start connecting with your classmates? Meet other new students, ask questions, win contests and find exclusive content in ASU's private social network: devil2devil. Opens in February.

  3. Get your parents connected.

    We invite your parents to join the Sun Devil community. Family members can access helpful resources, connect with other families and subscribe to updates at ASU's parent website.

  4. Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships.

    File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by ASU's priority date of January 1 each year to maximize the amount of aid you receive. Eligible students who apply by this date have a greater chance of receiving need-based aid. The FAFSA can be filed beginning October 1 of each year. ASU's Federal School Code is 001081.

    Search and apply for private and departmental scholarships through ASU's scholarship website. The general scholarship application, which is used for many ASU scholarships, is typically available in September and closed by February 1.

Remaining steps after you pay your deposit

  1. Customize Housing and Dining Preferences.

    Now that you have submitted your enrollment deposit, you can customize your housing preferences. Living on campus is critical to your personal and academic success. First-time freshmen live with students with whom they share a common academic and professional interest at the location of their school or college. Residential college freshmen study together, work closely with college faculty and have access to college support services and programs. Living and studying with other students in the same academic major provides a tremendous advantage to first-year students and it eases the general adjustment to university life.

    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 that 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.

    Visit My ASU to view and customize your housing and dining options based on your campus and academic major.

    Apply for housing early for a greater chance of receiving your living and dining preferences. Use the roommate finder tool on the My Housing Portal to search for a specific roommate (make sure you have his or her ASURITE UserID). If you are planning not to live on campus, please let University Housing know by signing in to the My Housing Portal.

  2. Sign up for ASU New Student Orientation and Register for Classes.

    ASU New Student Orientation is required for freshmen. At orientation, you can meet with an academic advisor and register for your first-semester courses. You will also meet other new Sun Devils and learn about university resources. Staff from a variety of departments — including University Housing and Student Financial Assistance, and members of the ASU Parents Association — will be on hand to answer your questions and welcome you to the university.

    Before you go to orientation

    1. Learn about ASU's Photo ID card options so you can choose your card at orientation. This card allows you to complete all in-person transactions requiring a photo ID and gain access to library and other services.
    2. Submit MMR immunization verification form. You must submit your Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) immunization form before attending orientation. You may receive an immunization at any ASU campus. Call for an appointment. Fees apply.

    3. Take math placement test and send ACT or SAT scores. Be sure you're ready to register for classes at ASU New Student Orientation. Take the math placement test well before you attend orientation. The university uses ACT and SAT scores to place you in the appropriate freshman English composition course. To check if ASU has your ACT or SAT scores on file, select Test Scores in the My Admission box on My ASU.

      You won't be able to register unless you have taken care of both of these items.

  3. Explore Summer Sessions.

    Get a jump start on your ASU experience by enrolling in summer sessions. Admission to ASU for the fall semester allows you to register for summer classes without submitting another application.

    Plan to attend orientation early to consult with your advisor on both fall and summer class selection.

  4. Review Parking Permit and Transportation Services Options.

    Learn about parking permits, campus shuttles, discounted bus and Metro Light Rail passes, Enterprise CarShare, carpooling and more at our Parking and Transit Services website.

  5. Pay Tuition and Fees

    Tuition charges will be billed to your student account and may be viewed online through My ASU after registration (typically by July). By registering for classes, you agree to pay all applicable tuition and registration fees. If you decide not to attend, you must completely withdraw from all classes before the semester begins. If tuition is not paid by the applicable due date, or financial aid is not awarded and accepted by the due date, you will automatically be enrolled in the tuition installment plan and charged a nonrefundable enrollment fee.

    Access online billing at My ASU. Select My Finances then Make a Payment. Students are responsible for checking their ASU email account for notification of billing statements and to review their student account on My ASU for current information.
