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!
Please note that while the U of A and ASU are on the Common Application, if you are only applying to one of them it is less expensive to use the individual school's website.
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.
News and Information from our three state schools:
- Due to all of the recent changes, we have extended our first-year application deadline to June 1, 2020. We have also extended our Enrollment Fee deadline for admitted students to June 1, 2020. Make sure you have completed an application and submitted your application fee/waiver by this date to be considered for admissions for the 2020-2021 school year.
- Any students applying to Arizona will need to self-report their academic history, including in-progress courses. Please encourage them to use an unofficial transcript to assist with accuracy.
- An application will not be evaluated without either a fee waiver or the payment of the application fee. Until either one of those is received, the student's application will be considered incomplete.
The University of Arizona will accept scores from the ACT rescheduled for June 13, 2020. In addition, we will accept scores from the SAT that has been rescheduled to June 6, 2020 for merit scholarship review. Students must list Arizona when they register for the exam or during the test itself for the test score to be used for scholarship consideration. Students are encouraged to reach out to their admissions representative for more info.

New automatic application waiver
The ASU application fee waiver is now automatic for eligible students.
When the student reaches the end of the application, they will see the following checkboxes under Pay & Submit
If you feel that your financial circumstances might qualify you for an application fee waiver, please select all that apply:
- I have received or am eligible to receive an ACT or SAT testing fee waiver
- I am enrolled in or am eligible to participate in the Federal Free or Reduced Price Lunch program
- My annual family income falls within the eligibility guidelines set by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service
- I am enrolled in a federal, state or local program that aids students from low-income families (e.g.TRiO programs such as Upward Bound)
- My family receives public assistance
- I live in federally subsidized public housing, a foster home or am homeless
- I am a ward of the state or an orphan
- I can provide a supporting statement from a school official, college access counselor, financial aid officer or community leader
- I have received a NACAC fee waiver
If they check any of these, they will see the following prompt: I certify that I understand and meet the eligibility requirements to request an admission application fee waiver. I also understand that I may be asked to submit verification of eligibility.
Once the student has confirmed that all information is accurate, they will be prompted to sign and submit the application.
If none of the circumstances apply to the student, they will select “None of these options apply to me.”
They will then be prompted to pay the fee using a credit card or wire transfer, or they will have the option of deferring payment to a later date.
