What students are saying
“The scholarship I got from ASU made my out-of-state tuition about equivalent to what it would have cost in California to go to school. Also, being able to graduate in four years was important to me — ASU guaranteed that, while the California schools I was considering could not.”

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.
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 in order to verify your FAFSA. All requests will be listed in My ASU or sent to your ASU email.
