Grad Type Verification

ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services must compare your current ASU grade level and prior degrees earned via official academic transcripts to two of your answers on the FAFSA before determining your financial aid eligibility.  This item will post to your Financing Tasks on My ASU if conflicting information exists between your admit status and your FAFSA responses.

You must resolve the conflicting information on your FAFSA before you will be offered or disbursed any financial aid. 

If you answered the below questions incorrectly, please correct your FAFSA online.  The FAFSA correction will arrive at ASU within 3 to 5 business days.  When no conflicting information exists, this Financing Task will be completed.

The two 2016-2017 FAFSA questions compared to your ASU Admissions records

FAFSA Question 28 (under the "Student Demographics" tab on the FAFSA on the Web):

Will you have your first bachelor's degree before you begin the 2016-2017 school year?

 

FAFSA Question 48 (under the "Dependency Status" tab on the FAFSA on the Web):

At the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year, will you be working on a master's or doctorate program?

 

The two 2017-2018 FAFSA questions compared to your ASU Admissions records

Will you have your first bachelor's degree before you begin the 2017-2018 school year?

Additional Info

  • As soon as your first bachelor's degree is posted by your previous school, please request an official academic transcript to be sent to ASU Admission Services.
  • If you earned your bachelor’s degree from ASU and are now seeking a graduate degree from ASU, you do not need to request your official academic transcript. 
  • If you complete your first bachelor's degree in fall (i.e. December) and will be a graduate student in the spring (i.e. January), you must wait until your bachelor's degree is verified and posted before this Financing Task can be completed.
    • In this specific scenario, you the student, do not have to make any updates/corrections to your FAFSA. 
  • If you complete your first bachelor’s degree by the end of the summer (i.e. August, 2017), still respond "Yes" to FAFSA question 28, under the "Student Demographics" tab, which asks if you will have your first bachelor's degree before you begin the 2017-2018 school year.
