Self-reporting your grades to ASU

Self-reported admission application

To expedite admission decisions, ASU accepts self-reported high school grades on the undergraduate admission application. After you graduate from high school, submit a final high school transcript that includes your graduation date. Submission of an ACT or SAT score is highly recommended for merit-based scholarship consideration.

ASU admission decisions for the fall semester begin the first week of September. If you do not meet initial eligibility, you may be placed into individual review and experience a longer wait time for an admission decision.

Incoming Arizona resident freshmen who are eligible for the Obama Scholars Program must have a completed admission application, the application fee or a waiver, and the FAFSA submitted by Jan. 1, 2019. Transcripts and test scores are due by Jan. 15, 2019, in order to be considered for the program.
