Admitted transfer students

Congratulations on being admitted to Arizona State University. You’re well on your way to becoming a Sun Devil. You have just a few things to take care of to make sure you're ready for your first day on campus.

Your next steps as an admitted transfer student

Step 01

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid

To apply for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. If you have already completed a FAFSA for another institution, you may use your existing application for the semester you are admitted to ASU. Update the school on your existing FAFSA with the following steps:

  1. Go to fafsa.gov to the current year application.
  2. Use your U.S. Department of Education PIN to access your account.
  3. Add ASU's Federal School Code (001081) to your application.
  4. If you have your Data Release Number, or DRN, you can call 800-433-3243 to request that your Student Aid Report be sent electronically to ASU.

View your FAFSA information on your Finances tab in My ASU, and view your Priority Tasks for important financial aid next steps. Complete any items listed under Priority Tasks early to ensure you do not have any barriers to receiving your aid.

We encourage you to compare financial aid and college costs.

Note: Arizona law requires verification of citizenship or other lawful presence in the U.S. for all students receiving financial aid funded by state money.

Step 02

Complete online orientation

Find online orientation in My ASU and complete it to become more familiar with university resources and services.

Step 03

Submit your MMR immunization verification form

You must submit your measles (rubeola), mumps and rubella immunization form before you can register for classes. You can fax, email or mail your records to ASU Health Services. You may receive an immunization at an ASU Health Services facility on any campus. Call for an appointment. Fees apply.

West campus | 602-543-8019

Step 04

Register for classes

You must meet with an academic advisor before you can register for your classes. We recommend you review the My Progress Report (DARS) link in My ASU and use the Transfer Guide to view course equivalencies before meeting with your academic advisor. Instructions to schedule an advising appointment can be found on My ASU by clicking on Advising in the My Programs and eAdvisor™ box.

Step 05

Request final transcripts

As soon as you graduate or complete your current semester or term, request an official final transcript be sent from your college or university to ASU Admission Services. If you were concurrently enrolled in high school and college courses, or if you were dually enrolled in college courses taught on your high school campus, you must request official transcripts from both your high school and the college offering the dual enrollment credit. ASU will not award college credit for courses that appear only on high school transcripts.

Lisa Falkner

"Congratulations on your admission to Arizona State University. We are very happy you are coming to join the Sun Devil family. You will be part of a vibrant community of scholars and mentors here to help you thrive and push you every step of the way.

Being a Sun Devil is more than just taking classes. It is working within groups across many disciplines to solve problems for which the solution does not currently exist. It is working out at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex with your classmates. It is connecting with friends who will join you through your lifelong journey as a Sun Devil. Above it all though, it is about you. I challenge you to approach every day on campus as an opportunity to grow. Take the lead on a class project that you are not comfortable with. Meet someone new every day. Eat lunch at a new place on campus every day. Start a new club on campus to explore and enjoy something you are passionate about.

Your time here at ASU is precious so take advantage of all the opportunities you'll have. Congratulations again — you're going to look good in gold."

Frequently-asked questions about transfer at ASU

I applied to ASU and was admitted, but did not attend. Do I need to reapply?

Admission is valid for one consecutive term from your original application term. After that, yes, you need to reapply. Be sure to sign in to My ASU to see if any additional items are needed to complete your file.

Can transfer students live on campus?

Yes, transfer students are encouraged to live on campus. Living on campus puts you right next to ASU student support resources and helps you be more connected to the university. And research shows that you are more likely to do better in your classes and graduate if you live on campus.

Are ASU scholarships for transfer students available?

Yes. Scholarships for transfer students are available. Students from Arizona who transfer from an Arizona community college, have at least a 3.50 cumulative GPA and have a demonstrated financial need can apply for the Transfer Achievement Award. High-achieving nonresident transfer students with financial need can apply for ASU’s New American University Scholarship. Be sure to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid  to increase your chances of receiving financial aid.
