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

There are a variety of options for tuition assistance for undergraduate students at ASU, including:

Scholarships

A scholarship is an award of financial aid that is awarded on various criteria, including but not limited to academic achievement and/or financial need. Scholarship money does not have to be paid back.

Grants

Grants do not have to be paid back and are awarded to students based on financial need and availability of funding.

Work Study

The work-study program provides part-time employment to undergraduates and graduates to allow them to earn money to help pay for college expenses.  Work-study is based upon financial need and availability of funding.

Loans

Loans are borrowed money for college expenses that must be paid back, oftentimes, after graduation.
