Fall Incoming Undergraduate Student
Enrolling in summer school allows new students to get familiar with college life at ASU and adjust to the rigor and pace of college courses before taking a full course load. Summer sessions also provide students with flexibility in their course loads during the fall and spring semesters.
All new fall undergraduate students who have been admitted as degree-seeking students can register for summer classes. Freshmen can receive assistance with course selection and with registration for summer classes during their advising session at Orientation. All new undergraduate students also may register for summer classes by logging in to My My ASU.
Speak to your advisor about what classes are recommended for new students.
