2 Receive your unique login credentials

Look for an email within 48 hours of registering containing a link to your Earned Admission portal and your ASURITE UserID, your unique ASU login credential.


3 Verify your identity and pursue credit

Use your ASURITE UserID to log into your Earned Admission portal and select your courses. Be sure to pay the $25 credit eligibility fee for each course in which you'd like to pursue academic credit. Pursuing credit allows you to receive academic credit for your work.


4 Complete your courses

Successfully complete 12-24 credit hours with a 2.75 GPA or higher. Most courses take 7.5 weeks to complete. Be sure to read your course syllabus for assignment due dates. At the end of most courses, you will complete an online proctored exam.


5 Get academic credit for your work

If you are happy with your final course grade, pay the $400 cost for your course. This credit will appear on My ASU and your official ASU transcript. If you are not happy with your grade, you may repeat the course to earn the grade that you need.


6 Earn your admission into ASU

Complete your Track, and if you haven't already, apply to the university to continue pursuing your undergraduate degree at ASU.
