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.
Online: Online payments are accepted through My ASU account (see "My Admission and Orientation" box). Only Visa and MasterCard debit and credit cards are accepted.
By mail: Checks made out to ‘Arizona State University’ can be sent to: ASU New Student Programs, PO Box 872201, Tempe, AZ 85287-2201.
Refund requests: Incoming fall students who have both paid the enrollment deposit and have declined admission on or before May 1, are eligible for a refund. Enrollment deposits submitted on or after the May 1 deadline are not eligible for any refunds.
Incoming spring students who have both paid the enrollment deposit and have declined admission on or before Dec. 1, are eligible for a refund. A partial refund of $100 may also be available for those who have attended an orientation program but have declined admission to ASU prior to Dec. 1. Enrollment deposits submitted on or after the Dec. 1 deadline are not eligible for any refunds.
A nonrefundable $25 refund processing fee is assessed on all refunds.
