If you are planning to pursue a degree at ASU, we highly recommend that you submit an application as soon as possible, so that your transition into ASU upon completion of the program is a seamless experience.
Unfortunately, you are not able to get financial aid. While you can receive credit for any course you successfully complete, you are not yet an admitted ASU student so there is no federal funding that applies.
No, we only have two fees associated with our courses: $25 to upgrade to the credit eligible track, that you pay before the course begins $400 to convert the course for credit and add it to your transcript, that you pay at the end of the course only if you are happy with your grade
There is an application fee if you are applying to ASU. You can learn more here.
Universal Learner Courses are general education courses that satisfy common requirements across a wide variety of degrees. To ensure each course you are taking counts specifically towards your degree of interest, we highly encourage you to find the major map of the degree you plan to pursue. Typically, you can find this by going to asuonline.asu.edu, finding your degree, scrolling down to the courses section, and clicking on the “view full major map” link. If that doesn’t work you can google search ASU major map NAME OF MAJOR, and you should be able to see the courses required for that degree.
If you have an application on file and transcripts were submitted, click on the transfer credit guide link in the Resources or Add Courses section of your dashboard to see what has transferred in. If you do not have an application on file, you will need to use the course search function of the Transfer Credit Guide to find the course you took to determine if and how it might apply.
Yes, if you would like to be eligible to receive credit you must pay the $25 upgrade fee at the beginning of your course by the deadline listed in your dashboard. If you would like to convert the course for credit and add it to your transcript, you will need to pay the $400.
You are able to audit the course for free, but you will not be eligible to add it to your transcript.
Universal Learner Courses are asynchronous which means they do not have any live content. While there are weekly due dates in most courses, you can complete the coursework when it is convenient for you. Some courses hold live office hours with instructors, but these are not required and the content is recorded and posted in the course to view whenever works best for you.
You must complete the required number of credit hours with a 2.75 GPA or higher. You must also submit an application with all required material to ASU to be eligible for admission. Learn more here.
If the degree program you are interested in has a higher admission requirement than ASU’s general admission, there may be a pathway available for you.

First, we suggest making sure this is not related to the ASURITE syncing timeline. As a refresher, it takes 2-3 business days to receive your ASURITE. Then it takes 24 hours to activate your ASURITE. Then, after that 24 hour period, you can use your ASURITE to login.
If after this time period, you’re still having issues, please do reach out at email@example.com
