International first-year student admission
Review the requirements and follow the steps below to apply to become an international first-year student at ASU.
Applying to ASU as an international student
First-year students must:
Have a 3.00 grade point average (GPA) (a "B" or better where "A"=4.00) from a secondary school. Some ASU programs may have higher admission or English proficiency requirements and may consider a minimum ACT or SAT score.
Must have three years of high school coursework. (If you are currently in high school, ASU needs to see 9–11 grade coursework. If you have completed high school, ASU needs to see 10–12 grade coursework.)
Must have and present a completed high school diploma or certificate.
ASU may offer conditional undergraduate admission to international applicants to an on-campus program who meet the academic (aptitude) requirements but who are not proficient in English. This offer of conditional admission will give you time to improve your English proficiency before you start classes at ASU. Your conditional admission offer is good for up to three semesters, during which time you must meet one of these requirements to begin your ASU experience.
International students who completed high school outside the U.S. are required to meet the following competency requirements:
Math: four years (algebra I, geometry, algebra II and one course requiring algebra II as a prerequisite).
Laboratory science: three years total (one year each from any of the following areas are accepted: biology, chemistry, earth science, integrated sciences and physics).
International students who attended four years of high school in the U.S. are required to meet the competency requirements.
Comparable degree requirements in different countries and territories
Arizona State University recognizes that educational systems are different across the world. To help you determine if your academic credentials are comparable to a U.S. high school degree and to understand the documents that need to be submitted for admission, please review the requirements for the country from which your credential was earned.
