Freshman Enrollment Deposit

All newly admitted freshmen pay a $300 enrollment deposit to assure a spot in the incoming freshman class. As soon as you have been admitted and have decided to attend Arizona State University, you should submit the enrollment deposit. Admitted students will be able to submit their enrollment deposits starting in mid-October.

Payment of the enrollment deposit is the first step in the enrollment process for newly admitted students. The enrollment deposit is required in order for a student to register for New Student Orientation, secure a Sun Devil ID card, and reserve university housing. Once students pay the deposit, they will have the ability to confirm their housing and dining preferences on My ASU and will also be able to sign up for an orientation program

The deposit will be credited as a payment toward the student's first expenses at ASU, which include attendance to New Student Orientation, obtaining a Sun Devil ID card, and receiving university housing and dining confirmations. The enrollment deposit is not associated with tuition and related fees, nor will it appear as a credit on the student’s account at a later date.

Enrollment Deposit Dates

For students enrolling in the fall 2016 semester, the enrollment deposit date is May 1, 2016. Freshmen from the United States admitted after May 1, 2016 should pay the enrollment deposit immediately to select their orientation date, and confirm their housing preferences and class schedule. Orientation dates fill up quickly, so register today.

Admitted freshmen from other countries (on F1 visas) who haven't paid their enrollment deposits by June 15 should contact an admission representative.

Admitted students who plan to enroll in the spring 2016 semester should pay their enrollment deposit by Dec. 1,  2015.
