Types of Tuition Assistance

The cost of obtaining a college degree is an important investment in your future. ASU has made the commitment to students who demonstrate financial need by meeting that need with one or more financial aid components. In fact, 90% of all our students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
 

Students in an ASU classroom
