2022–2023 Grad type 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
This item will appear in your Financing Tasks on My ASU when conflicting information exists between your ASU admit status and your FAFSA responses. The conflicting information must be resolved before you will be offered or disbursed any financial aid. Resolution includes correcting your FAFSA responses or updating your ASU admit status.
ASU's Financial Aid and Scholarship Services must compare your current ASU career and prior degrees earned via official academic transcripts to your FAFSA responses regarding your career and prior degrees earned to determine your financial aid eligibility.
Below are the FAFSA questions that are compared to your ASU admit status, as well as guidance on how to fix your FAFSA.
2022–2023 FAFSA questions
Under the "Student Demographics" section in the Student Education tab on the FAFSA website, go to the following question:
Will you have your first bachelor's degree before you begin the 2022–2023 school year?
Under the “Student Demographics” section in the Student Education tab on the FAFSA website, go to the following questions:
What college degree or certificate will you be working on when you begin the 2022-2023 school year?
What will your college grade level be when you begin the 2022-2023 school year?
|Priority Task||Student action needed|
|FAFSA Degree Correction Needed||
|FAFSA Correct Degree||Processing of your financial aid is on hold until ASU resolves a discrepancy between multiple questions on your FAFSA and your ASU admission application. You don't need to do anything at this time. In order to determine your financial aid eligibility ASU must resolve the conflict by updating your FAFSA application.|
|Self reported Degree||Complete the Self reported degrees form to confirm if you already have a bachelor’s degree as indicated on your admissions application or if you do not have a degree.|
- Financial Aid and Scholarship Services may correct your FAFSA responses on your behalf as long as parent information and signature are not required as a result of the correction.
- FAFSA corrections may take five to seven business days to process.
- When no conflicting information exists, this Financing Task will be completed.
- Please contact ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services for any FAFSA questions.
- Request an official academic transcript from each school you have attended and have it sent to ASU Admission Services.
- Once your degree is posted by your previous school, request a final official academic transcript showing the degree earned and have it sent to ASU Admission Services.
- If you earned a bachelor's degree from ASU and are now seeking an ASU graduate degree, you do not need to request your final official academic transcript.
- If you have completed a bachelor's degree and will immediately begin a graduate program in the next term, you must wait until your bachelor's degree is verified and posted before this Financing Task can be completed (i.e., undergraduate degree in fall and graduate degree in spring, or undergraduate degree in summer and graduate degree in the fall).
- If you complete a bachelor's degree by the end of summer and will be a graduate student in the fall, respond "Yes" to “Will you have your first bachelor's degree before you begin the 2022–2023 school year?”
