They say the longest journey begins with a single step. Well, enrolling at ASU isn’t really a “long journey,” but it does begin with one step, followed by a few more. Start taking your steps and check them off as you complete them so you can get closer to becoming a Sun Devil.
First-year student next steps
Activate your ASURITE User ID
Your ASURITE User ID grants you access to My ASU and university services. You’ll find reminders for things like submitting your final transcripts, sending in your test scores and submitting your immunization forms.
When you activate your ASURITE User ID, you will select to have your ASU email forwarded to a personal account. It's important to check your email often for time-sensitive notifications and next steps about enrollment. You'll have access to your official ASU email when classes begin. You can check which email your ASU email is forwarding to by looking in the profile tab in My ASU.
If you need help logging in, you can have your activation code for My ASU sent to you by visiting admission.asu.edu/resendcode or by contacting your admission team member.
Give your parents access to your records and account
Through My ASU Parent Guest Access, you can share your academic records with your parent or guardian, and even better, give them access to pay your tuition and bills. Go to My ASU, select the Profile tab at the top and find “Add a Guest” under My ASU Guest Access Permissions.

All students born after Jan. 1, 1957, are required to meet the following MMR immunization requirement before classes begin:
Option 1: Provide proof of two MMR, measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations. MMR one must be given on or after your first birthday; MMR two must be four weeks from the first, or later.
Option 2: Provide a copy of a Measles IgG or MMR IgG lab test showing positive immunity.

ASU's New Student Orientation Experience
Through ASU’s New Student Experience, accessed online in My ASU, you will prepare to take classes in the fall by completing essential next steps for enrollment. There are three steps — view details here and check My ASU for updates. Step 2 is the Academic Orientation Session, where you’ll meet with your academic college and finalize your class schedule. All students must complete the New Student Orientation Experience in order to enroll in classes.
Confirm your housing and dining
ASU first-year students live in the residential college of their academic major. Barrett students live in the Barrett residential community for their first two years. The priority deadline to apply for housing is May 15. Students who do not meet the deadline will need to seek alternative housing arrangements for the 2023-2024 academic year. Once you've paid your enrollment deposit, you can select your housing and dining preferences.
Please note that it may take one to two business days for your enrollment deposit status to be reflected in the housing portal.
