ASU Transfer Applications: Step-by-Step

Follow the steps below to complete your transfer application and fulfill all ASU admission requirements:

1. Complete the admission application to transfer to ASU.

You can complete the admission application to transfer to ASU online. To ensure a smooth transition and improve opportunities for financial assistance, you should start the transfer application process one year prior to your planned enrollment date at ASU.

Note: After the first day of a semester, approvals for that semester's application and admission will be handled by exception only. Please contact Admission Services at 480-965-7788.

2. Submit the nonrefundable transfer application fee.
Arizona resident fee is $50.
Nonresident, international and ASU Online fee is $65.
(For fall 2016 applications, the domestic nonresident fee is $70 and the international fee is $85.)

You can pay using a credit card (eCheck or MasterCard) when you submit your transfer application or mail a check or money order to ASU. If you are applying to an online degree program, you will need to pay with a credit card when you submit your transfer application.

3. Request to have your official transcripts and test scores mailed to ASU

High school and college transcripts
For your transfer application to be processed, you must request official transcripts to be sent directly to ASU from all schools you have attended. This includes high school transcripts, regardless of your age or number of college credit hours. ASU accepts high school transcripts hand-delivered in sealed envelopes by the applicant. However, ASU does not accept hand-delivered college transcripts or those sent by fax. High school transcripts must include GPA and date of graduation. Upon graduation or completion of your final semester at your current school, request that a final transcript be sent directly to ASU to determine final admission status. Receipt of your final transcript impacts financial aid disbursement and eligibility to register for future classes.

Test scores
Have your ACT and SAT scores sent directly to ASU. If you have taken AP, IB or CLEP exams, request that your scores be sent directly to ASU. If you are an international transfer student, please have your TOEFL or IELTS scores sent to ASU directly from the testing agency. ASU requires an English translation of all foreign-language transcripts.
