First-year out-of-state tuition cost
College is a wise investment in your future. Through a competitive tuition rate, financial aid opportunities and other ASU scholarship awards, ASU can help make that investment more cost-effective for you.
Please note that everyone’s net tuition cost is specific to their own circumstances and will be different for each person. To get an idea of what you can expect to please see the ASU tuition calculator.

2023 – 2024 expenses
As a first-year, out-of-state student, you'll pay ASU for tuition and fees, on-campus housing, and meals. Books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses will vary depending on your spending choices and should be budgeted into your college expenses. To get an estimate of what your costs might look like after financial aid, check out ASU's Net Price Calculator.
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. 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. Aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so apply early.
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 in order to verify your FAFSA. All requests will be listed in My ASU or sent to your ASU email.
Financial support programs for nonresidents
ASU encourages out-of-state students to consider participating in these cost-cutting programs.
