Your next steps after admission to ASU

Step 01

Activate your ASURITE UserID and check My ASU

Stay up to date on your next steps by checking My ASU regularly. Take care of tasks like submitting your final transcripts, sending in your test scores and submitting your immunization forms.

Step 02

Apply for scholarships

Search and apply for departmental and private scholarships through ASU's Scholarship Portal. The general scholarship application, which is used for many ASU scholarships, is typically available in September and close by Feb. 1.

Step 03

Fill out the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is used to award federal grants, loans, work-study and certain scholarships. We encourage you to compare financial aid and college costs. You can file the FAFSA now for the 2020-2021 school year. ASU’s Federal School Code is 001081.

Step 04

Confirm your attendance

Upon admission, first-year students pay an enrollment deposit. The deposit may be paid on My ASU beginning Oct. 1.

Step 05

Register for virtual orientation

ASU New Student Orientation is required for all incoming first-year students. It’s where you and your family will connect with other new students and learn about ASU resources, and you'll start to feel like a Sun Devil.

Step 06

Confirm your housing and dining preferences

All first-year students are expected to live on campus in one of ASU’s residential communities. You will live with students who share similar academic majors.

See VR tours and floor plans of the residential communities.

Step 07

Give your parents access to your records and account

Through My ASU Parent Guest Access, you can share your academic records with your parent or guardian, and give them access to pay your tuition and bills. Go to My ASU, select the Profile tab at the top, and find Add a Guest under My ASU Guest Access Permissions.
