Applying for scholarships

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. If you are entering ASU in the spring and already filed a FAFSA for the year, be sure to add ASU to your FAFSA (Federal School Code 001081) so we receive it.

Student employment

ASU employs more than 11,000 student workers in part-time hourly and Federal Work-Study positions. A part-time student job is a great way to earn extra income to help meet education and living expenses. An on-campus job is also an easy way to meet new people, network with the ASU community and become more familiar with campus. Check out the different types of positions

Financial aid has helped my family and I pay for college. I didn’t have to take out as much in loans as originally planned. I strongly encourage students to apply for financial aid.Michael M.
