Paying your enrollment deposit

Once you’ve been admitted and decide you want to attend ASU, your next step is to reserve your spot in the incoming class by submitting the $300 enrollment deposit. The enrollment deposit allows you to begin your next steps toward enrollment, which include registering for New Student Orientation, getting your ID card and selecting your room in a residence hall. You can submit your enrollment deposit beginning Oct. 1.  

If you are an Arizona resident who submitted your FAFSA, you can defer your enrollment deposit and begin your next steps. Your deposit will automatically be paid with your financial aid when it is disbursed in the fall.

The enrollment deposit is not associated with tuition and related fees, nor will it appear as a credit on the student’s account at a later date.
