Paying for college
Financial aid is money or funding that can help you cover tuition, books, course fees and other school-related expenses. Most U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens can receive federal financial aid if they demonstrate need and are enrolled in a degree or certificate program.
Federal financial aid might include Pell grants, scholarships or loans. Regardless of your family income, we encourage all eligible students to apply. You might be surprised at what you're eligible to receive.
To learn how much federal financial aid you’re eligible for, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Normally, the FAFSA becomes available each year on Oct. 1; however, due to updates to the FAFSA, the 2024–2025 FAFSA is expected to be available in December 2023 (and not in October). For students starting in spring or summer 2024, the 2023–2024 FAFSA is open.
ASU's FAFSA priority date is March 1. Students should file before this date to be considered for the most aid possible. In addition to completing the FAFSA to obtain federal financial aid, you can also seek out other forms of aid, such as scholarships, using the ASU scholarship portal.
