    Paying Tuition and Fees: Get instructions about how to set up a parent or guardian to make payments on your student’s behalf.

    Ram Family Connection: Learn more about ASU’s parents and families organization and sign up for our monthly newsletter.

    Campus Resources: Read about ASU’s available resources so you can help your student be successful.

    Is your student under 17? If so, please fill out the release waiver and bring it with you Wednesday so your student can participate in all the activities during the weekend.
