• Public 4 Year Colleges (AZ)

    Arizona has three public, state universities and they are very different in locale, size and culture.  While they offer many of the same degree programs, each one is different so do some exploring to find your best fit!

    Arizona State University

    Northern Arizona University

    University of Arizona

    Test scores: Beginning with Fall 2016 applications, ACT and SAT scores are no longer required for consideration for general admission.  Scores are still required for consideration of financial/merit aid and Honors Colleges, as well as some specific colleges within the universities.  Please check the individual university websites to make sure you know which ones are requiring test scores.  All test scores need to come directly from either College Board or ACT in order to be used for merit aid and Honors College consideration.

    New Information about FAFSA Verification:

    ASU has started selecting students for financial aid verification. The federal government requires colleges to verify data reported by students and parents on the FAFSA. Students are selected randomly or if they report conflicting information on the FAFSA.

    If a student is chosen for verification they will be notified through their My ASU account with the verification notice. The student must click on the notice, then the link “review the detailed instructions” and create an account. At that point they will be in a system called Verify FAFSA, which is where they will electronically provide us with additional information.

    We cannot and will not evaluate students for financial aid until they successfully complete the verification process. Please encourage all ASU applicants to check their My ASU portals to see if they were selected.

    If students have any questions about the verification process, please eamail Ms. Kristen Bagley at asukristenbagley@asu.edu
