ASU Online gives students flexibility

Some students find the typical on-campus college learning environment doesn’t work for them because of work and family obligations, transportation issues or mobility challenges. That’s why there is ASU Online. Students can earn a bachelor’s degree in any of more than 25 disciplines, and out-of-state students pay the in-state tuition rate. ASU Online offers the same courses taught by the same professors who are located on the ASU campuses. The only difference is students can do their work when it makes sense for them; evenings, weekends — even the middle of the night. Learn about the ASU Online application process.
