2024-2025 Eligible noncitizen verification

If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks in My ASU, your financial aid disbursement will be placed on hold until you provide the information requested.

Why this is needed: The Department of Homeland Security was unable to confirm your eligible noncitizen status. ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services needs proof of your status to continue reviewing your financial aid file.

In order to be eligible for federal student aid you must provide acceptable documentation. If you do not have any of the documentation listed below you will be ineligible for federal student aid and this task will remain on your Financing Tasks on My ASU. You will need to use other resources to pay your ASU charges, such as the ASU Payment Plan or please visit https://tuition.asu.edu/scholarships/resources/other for other financial aid resources.
