A financial guarantee serves as a contract between the student, the sponsor, and ASU. It allows ASU to bill the Sponsor for the tuition and fees agreed upon in the document. The document itself typically includes your approved major and the length of the scholarship.
A sponsor may opt out of paying a specific charge, such as tuition and fees for online or hybrid courses, courses taken at another institution, or specific university fees. Charges not covered by your sponsorship will remain your financial responsibility.
Sponsorship does not mean all tuition and fee charges reflected on your student account will be covered by the sponsor. You must regularly monitor your financial account to ensure all charges are cleared in a timely manner to avoid late fees.

- Parking fines and fees.

Submitting your financial guarantee
You must submit a copy of your financial guarantee to ASU every time you receive one, whether for the first time or an updated version, in order to ensure that billing of your sponsor is not interrupted and to avoid late fees on your account.
