ASU tuition and fees are approved annually by the Arizona Board of Regents.  In addition to resident and nonresident tuition, commonly billed tuition and fees include:

Differential Tuition and Program Tuition

Certain colleges and programs assess additional differential and program tuition as approved by the Arizona Board of Regents. Visit the Tuition and Fees Schedules for college and program specific tuition and fees.

Excess Hours Tuition

The Arizona Legislature enacted legislation in 2005 (A.R.S. § 15-1626) that establishes credit hour thresholds for undergraduate students who attend a public university in Arizona.  Undergraduate students who enroll for credit hours beyond the applicable threshold are required to pay an Excess Hours Tuition Surcharge. Students who have more than 145 credit hours will be assessed the Undergraduate Excess Hours Tuition Surcharge.

Undergraduate College Fee 1-4

The Undergraduate College Fee is one of four fee categories based on a student's program of study.  ASU conducted a comprehensive review of all instructional costs for every program.  Programs of study with similar costs were grouped together, and those fees were averaged to determine an amount for each category.  *Visit the Tuition Estimator to determine your Undergraduate College Fee.
