As a 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.

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 to verify your FAFSA. All requests will be listed in My ASU or sent to your ASU email. If you are entering ASU in the spring and already filed a FAFSA for the year, be sure to add ASU to your FAFSA (Federal School Code 001081) so we receive it.
ASU employs more than 11,000 student workers in part-time hourly and Federal Work-Study positions. A part-time student job is a great way to earn extra income to help meet education and living expenses. An on-campus job is also an easy way to meet new people, network with the ASU community and become more familiar with campus. Check out the different types of positions
