Tuition and Paying for College

Ways to Pay for College

When you get a college education, you are investing in yourself and your future. Don’t let the cost of tuition stop you from studying in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and pursuing your dream job. We think your education is well worth the investment and will pay off in the future.
Paying for college doesn’t have to be stressful. In addition to grants and student employment, New College students have many financial aid opportunities, including scholarships. Plus, some out-of-state students may qualify for reduced tuition through Western Undergraduate Exchange and the Western Regional Graduate Program.
Financial aid includes federal pell grants and scholarships. Regardless of your family income, we encourage all  students to apply. You might be surprised at what you’re eligible to receive.
Apply for financial aid as early as Oct. 1 every year.
The ASU FAFSA priority filing deadline is Jan. 15.

Estimate the Cost of Attendance

We recommend prospective students and their families use ASU's Net Price Calculator to get an idea of estimated net price information based on what similar students paid in a previous year. The cost of attendance is the estimated cost of completing a full year as a full-time student and includes tuition and fees, housing and meals, books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Costs will vary depending on course requirements and personal spending habits. Learn more below and discover different ways to fund your education.
