International student admission
Study from anywhere in the world
ASU consists of learners from locations across the globe, including nearly 1,000 foreign national students enrolled from abroad. ASU Online typically considers any foreign national enrolled from abroad to be an international student. However, those with foreign credentials, regardless of location or citizenship, may also be required to submit translated transcripts or proof of English proficiency.
International students include transfer and first-year students, and those pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees.
