How to Apply for Financial Aid

Launch of the 2024–25 FAFSA® Form
  1. Apply for the FAFSA

    First things first, make sure you fill out the FAFSA. You’ll need to Create an Account and get a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID). This can be done now. The 2023-24 FAFSA is for students attending fall 2023, spring 2024 and summer 2024. The 2024-25 FAFSA determines your financial aid beginning fall 2024 through summer 2025. The State Financial Aid Priority deadline has been updated from January 15, 2024, to April 15, 2024. Submit your 2024-25 FAFSA by this priority deadline for full consideration of all state and other financial aid programs.
    ASU’s FAFSA Code: 003541

  2. Fill out the General Scholarship Application

    In addition to the ASU Distinguished Scholarship, we also offer more than 400 general scholarships. To be eligible, you must submit the General Scholarship Application, available Oct. 1 every year on RamPort. Yes, you read that right - one application gives you access to 500 potential scholarships!

    Complete the application by Jan. 15 to have a better chance of being selected for a scholarship.
  3. Other Forms

    In some cases, additional forms may be required for the FAFSA, or if you intend to apply for other aid programs, such as the Texas Application for State Financial Aid.

After applying for financial aid, you’ll be notified of your award and finalize it.
