Nonresident transfer student 2023 – 2024 expenses
As a nonresident or out of state transfer 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 aid
File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid each year to see how much federal aid (grants, work-study, loans) you’re eligible to receive. 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. The earlier you apply, the more aid you’re likely to receive.
After filing the FAFSA, check your email and the Priority Tasks in My ASU often — this is where you’ll be notified if ASU needs additional documentation to verify your FAFSA. Students starting ASU in the spring who have already submitted a FAFSA for the year should add ASU to their FAFSA. ASU’s Federal School Code is 001081.
