With several community colleges and other universities in the Phoenix-metro area, you may find that you want to take a class at one of these schools in addition to your full-time enrollment at ASU. In order to do so, you will need authorization.
Before making your request, be sure that you are enrolled full-time at ASU. If you are requesting authorization for the summer semester or winter break, you must be enrolled full-time for the semester immediately following the semester/break.
Make sure you are eligible to enroll in courses at another institution.
If you are a graduate student, indicate the purpose of your course enrollment at another institution.
If you are a sponsored student, you must submit your proof of sponsor approval in the eForm.
If further information or documentation is needed, we will contact you via email or phone. You will receive an email when your authorization has been approved. The institution you wish to take classes at will also receive an authorization approval email.
Work with ASU's University Registrar Services to transfer credit hours to your ASU degree program, if applicable.
No. You will need a new authorization each semester. For example, if you have been authorized to take a class in the fall semester, but want to take a class in the spring semester as well, you will need to submit another request.
Yes. You may only enroll part time at another school while also maintaining your full-time enrollment at ASU.
You may enroll in more than one school in the same semester; however, the total number of credit hours cannot exceed part-time enrollment combined across all of the classes you are taking outside ASU. You will need to submit a separate request for each school you will be attending.
You may be able to take a course outside ASU, however, a course from another school cannot be taken in place of an ASU class that is required for your graduate program. You are welcome to enroll in an elective class taken for personal enrichment.
Maricopa Community Colleges require authorization from Arizona State University to take courses during the summer semester. However, if the school you wish to attend is not a Maricopa Community College you should contact the institution as they may not require authorization for the summer semester.
During the winter break or summer semester you may choose to take a class from a school outside the Phoenix-metro area. However, during the fall and spring semesters you must maintain physical presence by taking classes in-person at ASU.
