General financial aid information

Undergraduate and graduate Sun Devil student-athletes with remaining eligibility who meet applicable NCAA, Pac-12, and ASU regulations may be eligible for athletically related financial aid.  The determination regarding whether any particular student-athlete will be offered aid during the academic year is made by the student-athlete’s coach (with approval from the ASU Financial Aid Office).  NCAA legislation governs the type and amount of aid that student-athletes may receive.

Summer athletics financial aid – Summer athletics aid is separate from the award student-athletes receives during the academic year.  Such aid may be awarded if a student-athlete:  (a) attended ASU for at least one semester during the regular academic year and (b) received athletics aid during that semester or has been awarded athletics aid for the following academic year.  If received, the aid will most likely be in proportion to what the student-athlete received during the academic year.  To be considered for summer athletics aid, student-athletes will complete the summer school online application with their academic coaches in the Office of Student-Athlete Development.  Summer athletics aid is not guaranteed.
