Next steps for admitted undergraduate students

This guide will help you with the important steps you need to take to enroll for classes and prepare for the beginning of your academic year. All students will need to:

Submit final transcripts

Whether graduating from high school or completing your current college semester, all students must request that a final transcript be sent from their school to ASU. Freshmen who do not have a final high school transcript on file with ASU will not be able to receive financial aid or register for classes beyond their first semester. Submit your final transcript.

Learn about financial aid options

Start by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Check out your options for financial aid.

Please review the list for your student type in one of the following drop-downs (e.g. International students, First-time freshmen).

First Year Students

Enrollment deposit

All newly admitted first year students at ASU pay an enrollment deposit to ensure a spot in the incoming class. As soon as you have been admitted and have decided to attend Arizona State University, you should submit the enrollment deposit. Once paid, you can register for New Student Orientation Experience, secure a Sun Devil ID card and reserve university housing. Make your enrollment deposit online.

New Student Orientation Experience

The New Student Orientation Experience will provide you with the information, resources, tips and tools you need to make a successful transition to college at ASU. You’ll connect with your academic college and finalize your class schedule, become familiar with the ASU campus, learn about opportunities and support networks available to you as a Sun Devil and much more.
We look forward to supporting and assisting you along the way to ensure you are ASU ready. Once you have paid your enrollment deposit, access the New Student Orientation Experience on your My ASU account.

Math Placement Assessment

All incoming students must complete the Math Placement Assessment prior to orientation and enrollment into their first semester math course, unless they have transferred an equivalent prerequisite course.  Learn about the ASU Math Placement Assessment and take it online.

Residential life

First year students in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering live in our residential communities. Find out more about Fulton Residential Life.


Join other first year students in team-building activities and meet faculty, staff and students. At E2, you’ll participate in activities like a low-ropes course, small and large team building challenges, camp fires and other fun activities. Activities are led by Fulton Schools faculty, staff and upper-class students. Learn more about E2 for incoming first year students and sign up for a session.

Transfer students

Below are the next steps to take in order to complete your transfer into the Fulton Schools at ASU:

  1. Go to your My ASU and complete the Transfer Orientation, listed as a priority task.
  2. Register for the online Fulton Schools transfer orientation. This program will prepare you to meet with your academic advisor and show you how to get involved at the Fulton Schools.
  3. Go to, log on, and click on My Transfer Courses (link in upper-right corner of page) to check the progress and status of transfer course evaluations. *Some courses may require a syllabus for evaluation.*
  4. Consider enrolling for FSE 310 Topic: Transfer Success in FSE (1 credit). FSE 310 was created to help you to be a successful engineering student and ultimately, engineer. It is designed to introduce all students to the unique elements, culture, challenges and opportunities at ASU and within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
