Welcome to Arkansas State University!


No student is considered for financial aid until he or she has applied and been accepted into Arkansas State University. Your admission application is also your application to the various institutional scholarships. To apply for privately funded scholarships, you must fill out a separate application. You will need to create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID). Both students and their parents can create a Federal Student Aid ID. The next step would be to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) online.

The ASU federal school code is "001090". The priority deadline for completing the FAFSA is February 15th.
