Transfer students

Welcome to Arizona State University.

You’re now on your way to becoming part of the most innovative and forward-thinking university in the nation. And by choosing ASU, you will become a part of a community of master learners and doers who will support you during your journey at ASU.

We’ve gathered your next steps to help you prepare for your transition to ASU — plus we’ve added some extras for you to enjoy. You’ll be getting a lot of information about ASU in the coming months. This guide highlights the most important things to know so you’ll be prepared for your new Sun Devil status.



Your next steps as an admitted transfer student

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 checking them off as you complete them so you can be on your way to becoming a Sun Devil.

Activate your ASURITE User ID 

Your ASURITE User ID grants you access to My ASU and university services. See your admission letter for details if you haven’t activated your ASURITE User ID yet. 

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 previously applied to ASU, use your existing ASURITE User ID to activate and log in to My ASU and your ASU email.

Schedule a socially-distanced walking tour with a campus tour guide at all of ASU’s campuses.
