Begin the process
Begin by submitting an application to ASU (including all required materials).
Once you have received an admission status of “Pending Your Decision” or guidance from an enrollment coach, you may register for Universal Learner Courses.
The application is not mandatory to begin completing courses. However, if you complete your required courses and don’t have an application on file, your start date at ASU could be delayed.
Enroll in your course(s)
Be sure to upgrade
In order to be eligible to receive academic credit, you must upgrade your course and verify your identity.
Use your ASURITE ID to log in to the course dashboard and enroll in your course(s). Click the Upgrade button on the course name within your dashboard and pay the $25 fee.
Next, you’ll be prompted to verify your identity by providing a photo of yourself and a government-issued ID. If you’re a minor (under the age of 18), you may provide a birth certificate and photo to begin the course, but a government-issued ID will be required in order to take a proctored exam and complete the course.
You only need to verify your identity once ever while taking Universal Learner Courses.

Start your course
Complete your coursework
Begin completing your coursework by submitting all requested assignments by the due dates listed in the course schedule.
At the end of most courses, you’ll need to take an online proctored exam. You must take this exam during the time period that it is open. For more information, read the following resources on exams:
Pay and earn credit
Happy with your final grade? Great! Pay the $400 course fee and receive academic credit, which will appear on My ASU and your official ASU transcript. As a reminder, you need a cumulative 2.75 GPA in order to gain admission into ASU. Courses can only be transcripted one time. So, be sure to calculate your GPA in your student dashboard before deciding to convert your course for credit and commit it to your transcript.
Not happy with your grade? Take the course again and only pay when you are satisfied.
Earn admission into ASU
Or transfer your credits to another university
You’ll meet the aptitude requirements for general university admission when you complete your required courses with a 2.75 GPA or higher. If you have submitted an application and all required materials to ASU, you’ll be eligible for admission.
If you are not interested in pursuing your studies at ASU, no problem. You’ll have a transcript you can provide to any university that accepts ASU credits. This can be done from your myASU home page under the My Classes section.
