Managing your aid

The terms students agree to when accepting financial aid at ASU.
Thinking about dropping a class? Planning on enrolling part-time? Your aid will be affected by our census policy.
Thinking about withdrawing from ASU? Have you failed all your classes last term? You may be required to repay some of your financial aid.
Participation in your classes is critical for your academic success and your financial aid eligibility.
Financial aid dependency is determined by federal regulations. Our Dependency Status policy will explain when you can be considered an independent student for financial aid.
Federal aid programs are subject to limits set by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
Eligibility for financial aid is determined by federal and institutional policies.

Beginning with the 2013-2014 academic year, the Department of Education established new regulations to prevent fraud and abuse in Federal Student Aid programs by identifying students with unusual enrollment histories (UEH). Some students who have an unusual enrollment history have legitimate reasons for their enrollment at multiple institutions.

Are you graduating during the fall or plan on attending only one semester? See how attending one semester as a financial aid recipient can affect your awards.
Your cost of attendance (COA) determines the maximum amount of aid you can receive during the academic year. Receiving more aid than your COA will result in a reduction of other aid and, in some cases, may result in a bill.
Your progress towards graduation is important to remain in good financial aid standing. Not passing your courses or attempting too many courses are signs of unsatisfactory progress and may impact your future eligibility for financial aid.
This policy is for scholarship administrators and explains how to award a scholarship depending on how the scholarship is funded.

ASU follows the Arizona Student Loan Code of Conduct between schools and lending institutions. You can read the Code of Conduct below.

ASU follows the Arizona Board of Regents’ policy regarding relationships between the financial aid office and lenders, which eliminates possible conflicts of interests.
