Credit limits for first-time freshmen at ASU Online

First-time freshmen may initially enroll for up to seven credits during their first session and up to four credits in the second session.

ASU wants to ensure that first-time freshman are successful during their critical first two sessions acclimating to the online learning environment. Therefore, first-time freshmen may initially enroll for up to seven credits during their first session and up to 4 credits in the second session. After the third week of classes, students can enroll for additional classes (up to 9 credits total) for the second session if they are performing at a satisfactory academic level.

Students with questions about their schedule should make an appointment with their academic advisor. Academic advisor contact info is available on the My ASU homepage under the My Programs and eAdvisor section by clicking on the "Advising" link.

If students utilizing financial aid decide to enroll for additional credits after the third week of classes, an adjustment will need to be made to their account with additional charges posted. Thus, it is imperative for them to speak to a financial aid representative so they can fully understand their financial situation and ensure there is a plan to cover the additional charges.

Students can receive assistance from our financial aid department by utilizing one of the following options:
