Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • After you've written your essays for the ASU application, have a teacher at your high school review them to help give you constructive criticism so that you can submit the best essay possible.
  • Apply to ASU ASAP! The optimal time to apply is the summer between junior and senior year of high school.
  • As you begin to apply to ASU, keep track of your application and do not be afraid to call the university admissions council to help you with any questions.
  • Be aware of deadlines! This is crucial to the admissions process. Again, the earlier you submit your application, the more likely you are to be accepted!
  • The earlier you apply to ASU, the more likely you are to have more scholarships offered to you.
  • If possible, communicate with students on campus to see the pros and cons of ASU. It will help give you a better insight about the institution, especially coming from students currently enrolled.
  • Keep your grades up in high school. A decent GPA is all that you really need to be admitted. Stay above a 3.0 GPA, and you should be golden.
  • Make sure to keep your priorities in check while you are still in high school. Good study habits will help you obtain better grades and make the admissions process that much smoother.
  • Participate in extracurricular activities and take some time to volunteer throughout high school. This will make you more well-rounded and help you develop a better sense of the community.
  • Perform well on the SATs and ACTs. This will help make you a more competitive applicant. Shoot for at least a 1500 on the SAT and a 22 on the ACT.
  • Research ASU and make sure this is the institution you want to be a part of. Look into different undergraduate programs and other academic possibilities so that you will know what you want to pursue once you get admitted.
  • Simply be yourself! There is no one else in the world like you, so show ASU who you are, and the admissions council will really appreciate that!
  • Take a tour of the ASU campus. It will help you decide if a very large school with about 100,000 students is the right place for you.
  • While in high school, take as many honors, AP, or IB program classes as possible.
  • Work on being self-reliant. The university is very large, and you will need to be responsible for yourself. Demonstrating that attribute in your application will help make you a strong applicant.
