Steps to Study Abroad on Non-ASU Programs

  1. ATTEND a STUDY ABROAD 101 info session, led by a Study Abroad Peer Advisor, which covers all the basic information on program types, eligibility, housing, finances, searching for and choosing a program, and the application process.  Sessions are held several times a week.  Visit our website for specific times and locations.

  2. SEARCH the Study Abroad Office website and/or visit the Study Abroad Office on the ASU Tempe Campus.

  3. CHOOSE your program carefully, making sure to consider the following…

    • Do you need to earn credit for your work? Unlike students who participate in an ASU program, students participating in Non-ASU programs will NOT be enrolled at ASU for the duration of the program and are NOT guaranteed to receive credit for work completed on the program. 

    • Do you need financial aid to help cover the costs of the program? Students participating in an ASU program may use any eligible financial aid and scholarships to help cover the costs associated with studying abroad. Students participating in Non-ASU programs may NOT be eligible to use their financial aid or scholarships.

  4. CONTACT your College or School Academic Advisor to determine if and how the credits earned on your Non-ASU program may apply to your degree progress. 

  5. VISIT one of the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services offices to determine whether or not you are eligible to apply any amount of your aid package to your program costs and/or what steps you need to take to facilitate that process. More information is available on the Financial Aid and Scholarship Services website.

  6. SUBMIT your application directly to your selected non-ASU program. The ASU Study Abroad Office staff is unable to sign off on any application documents you may be required to submit to your Non-ASU program.

  7. APPLY for a Leave of Absence from ASU, if necessary, in order to maintain your degree status at ASU. More information on this process is available on the ASU website at

  8. SUBMIT payment directly to your Non-ASU program, as required by the program.

  9. APPLY for readmission to ASU, if you were required to take a Leave of Absence. More information on this process is available here.
