Financial Aid Resources for Students Regardless of Immigration Status

Private Financial Aid

Private scholarships that do not specify U.S. citizenship or lawful presence in the scholarship eligibility criteria, or that do not require a social security number for the application, may be available to students regardless of their immigration status. Review each scholarship opportunity to understand eligibility requirements.

Budgeting Resources

ASU offers students a tuition payment plan, which breaks down tuition into several payments over the course of the semester, allowing students to budget payment of their tuition over several months and to pay tuition with multiple credit cards or from multiple bank accounts. See ASU's Tuition and Billing for more information.

Federal and State Financial Aid

Federal and Arizona state financial aid requires documentation of lawful status. The most common documentation is a social security number that is matched with federal records via the FAFSA.
