How to apply
ASU will review your application file once you have submitted all materials. To see if you have any missing items, and to view your admission status, log into My ASU using your ASURITE ID, which is sent to you after you apply for admission. Students who are not admitted to ASU will be provided with information to appeal.
- Complete the admission application.
Fill out the admission application online by the preferential date. We encourage you to apply early. Ideally, you will start the application process one year prior to your planned enrollment date at ASU. This timeline is important to help ensure a smooth transition and improve opportunities for financial assistance.
Note: After the first day of a semester, approvals for that semester's application and admission will be handled by exception only. Please contact Admission Services at 480-965-7788.
- Submit the nonrefundable application fee.
Arizona resident fee is $50.
Nonresident, International and ASU Online fee is $65.
Pay using a credit card (eCheck or MasterCard) when you submit your application or mail a check or money order to ASU. If you are applying to an online program, you will need to pay with a credit card when you submit your application.
- Request to have your official transcript(s) and test scores mailed to ASU.
In order for your file to be processed you must request official transcripts be sent directly to ASU from all institutions you have attended. This includes high school transcripts regardless of your age or number of college credit hours. ASU accepts transcripts in a sealed envelope from high schools hand-delivered by applicants themselves to undergraduate admissions but does not accept hand-delivered college transcripts or those transmitted by fax. High school transcripts must show grade point average (GPA) and date of graduation. Upon graduation or completion of your final semester at your current institution, request that a final transcript be sent directly to ASU to determine final admission status. Receipt of your final transcript impacts financial aid disbursement and eligibility to register for future classes.
Have your ACT/SAT scores sent directly to ASU. If you have taken AP, IB, and/or CLEP exams, request that your scores be sent directly to ASU. If you are an international applicant, please have your TOEFL or IELTS scores sent to ASU directly from the testing agency. ASU requires an English translation of all foreign-language transcripts.
All admission materials must be sent to:
Arizona State University
P.O. Box 870112
Tempe, AZ 85287-0112
You will need to pay using an eCheck or MasterCard when you submit your application.
