All newly admitted freshmen pay a $300 enrollment deposit to assure his or her spot in the incoming freshmen 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 deposit 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 towards the student's first expenses at Arizona State University, 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.
