Many sponsors have strict policies and limits regarding the number of online or hybrid classes you can take throughout your degree program at ASU while being a sponsored student. If you fail to adhere to your sponsor’s policies, you may face the following consequences:
Financial responsibility for any unapproved online or hybrid courses.
Diploma authentication issues with the Ministry of Education in your home country after graduating.
Sponsorship extension issues.
Sponsors may request that ASU block their students from enrolling in online or hybrid classes. If a sponsor has requested this block, you will receive an error message when you attempt to enroll in an online or hybrid course.
Rules regarding online and hybrid course enrollment vary between sponsors. It is your responsibility to be familiar with your sponsor’s policies.
Planning for online or hybrid classes
It is important that you plan to only take in-person courses. We encourage you to be proactive and work with your academic advisor during your first semester at ASU to identify whether any of the courses required for your degree will only be offered in an online or hybrid format.
If you must enroll in an online or hybrid course, it is important to begin the approval process with your sponsor early. The ISSC is unable to allow enrollment in online or hybrid courses if the proper approval is not received from your sponsor, regardless of deadlines.
