How It Works
A college education is within your reach, even while you are attending high school. Through Universal Learner Courses (ULCs), you can gain college experience, earn credit for a fraction of the cost and pay only if you pass the course.
With Universal Learner Courses, you can:
For individual students, there is a $25 enrollment fee per course and an additional $400 if you pass the course and decide to transcript for credit at ASU.
Ready to go? Follow the steps below to register for ULCs.
Begin the process
Create your account here.
Note: Some high school partners have custom login portals. If you were provided a different web address to complete your registration, please use that web address.
Check your email
You’ll receive an email within 1-2 business days of registering with your ASURITE ID, which you’ll use to log in to your dashboard.
Enroll in your courses
Pay to complete enrollment
Use your ASURITE ID to log in to the course dashboard. Enroll in your courses by paying the $25 course enrollment fee.
If this is your first time registering for Universal Learner Courses, 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.

Start your course
Log in. Launch the course. Learn something new.
Complete your coursework by submitting all requested assignments by the due dates listed in the course schedule.
At the end of some courses, you’ll need to take an online proctored exam. You must take this exam during the time that it is open. For more information, read the following resources on exams:
Pay and add to your transcript
Congratulations…you’ve completed your course! If you’re happy with your grade, pay the $400 course fee within one year and receive academic credit, which will appear on your myASU page and your official ASU transcript.
Some things to consider before adding a course to your transcript:
- You don’t have to add the courses to your transcript, so think carefully before transcripting a “C” grade, as it could affect your overall GPA as you apply to college. With Universal Learner Courses, you can decide the next step.
- You won’t be able to retake ULCs once you’ve transcripted, so be sure you’re happy with your grade before paying.
- If you want to take the course for a better grade, you can! Just sign up again for the course. Just remember - you can only transcript the course grade once.
