Types of financial aid

Applying for financial aid

To receive federal financial aid (grants, loans and work-study) you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid each year. The FAFSA opens every Oct. 1 and ASU’s priority filing date is Jan. 15. Aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early.

File your FAFSA 

Once you submit your FAFSA, check your Priority Actions box in My ASU regularly to be sure that ASU does not need any additional documents from you to verify your FAFSA. All requests will be listed in My ASU or sent to your ASU email.
