Arizona state law requires students to provide verification of citizenship, permanent residency or other lawful immigration status if they are classified as residents for tuition purposes or if they are seeking any type of financial assistance that is subsidized or paid in whole or in part with state monies. Students that need to complete this requirement are notified on My ASU via a Priority Task or Registration Hold.
Verifying via the FAFSA is preferred. Students verified this way do not need to provide any additional documentation. Your priority task will be marked complete when ASU receives and accepts your FAFSA (which is typically five to seven days after your FAFSA is submitted to the US Department of Education). You may need to provide additional information if your FAFSA is rejected or selected for review by Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
Students can upload appropriate documents electronically using ASU’s secure web form. A list of acceptable documents is provided on the web form. All documentation is subject to review and students may be asked to provide additional information. Processing time is 2-3 business days.
Students can submit documents by mail (see below) or by email to email@example.com. Copies of your documentation is acceptable provided they are legible and unaltered. All documentation is subject to review and students may be asked to provide additional information. Processing time is 2-3 business days.
