ASU wants to ensure your travels to the U.S. are as smooth and supported as possible. We have created the ASU Travel Pack to accompany you through your Port of Entry to the U.S. and to your final destination at ASU. In this travel pack, you will find three important letters:
Airport recommendations: Recommendations for travel in the U.S.
Follow these instructions when you arrive at your Port of Entry into the U.S. and enter through U.S. Customs.
Letter from ASU: Proof of on-campus, in-person classes.
Show this letter to the U.S. Port of Entry Officer alongside your other travel documents (see below)
Letter from Fragomen: Proof of legal counsel.
If you encounter any difficulties upon entering the U.S., please show this letter to U.S. Customs. It is a letter confirming that you have legal representation as an international student at ASU by immigration attorneys at Fragomen.
Please download, print and read each of these letters carefully. Remember to bring them in your carry-on luggage during your travels.
If you have any questions throughout your journey, please contact us at email@example.com or +1 602-550-5131. We look forward to seeing you soon at ASU.
Your ASURITE ID, given to you after you applied to Global Launch, is used to access ASU's online student services at MyASU. Your ASURITE must be activated online, along with your ASU email (firstname.lastname@example.org). This email is your official university address, to receive all important information about the Pathways program and ASU. Please reference this document for more instructions and information.
If you do not have an ASURITE User ID and activation code, please call (480) 965-2437. If you need help with the activation process, contact the University Technology Office (UTO) Help Desk at 1-855-278-5080.
Tuition and fees are billed to your MyASU account (http://my.asu.edu). Charges may change if a schedule change is made. Full payment of tuition and fees is due no later than 5:00 p.m. on the 5th day of classes. If you have unpaid charges on your account, you will receive late fees until your charges are paid.
If you are sponsored by your government or another organization, you must submit your financial guarantee letter to the Sponsored Student Office no later than the 10th day of classes or you will be responsible for full payment of tuition, fees and health insurance.
If you have past due charges on your account, you will not be allowed to register for the next session and may be expelled after the last day of the current session.
To access online billing:
You will need between $2,000 and $3,000 USD for living expenses and incidentals for the first few weeks of your program. Please be sure to have access to these funds, but you should not travel with large amounts of cash. Instead, carry a smaller amount of cash and use a credit card or purchase traveler's checks before traveling to the U.S.
All students must attend the Intensive English Program Orientation week and welcome events.
In addition to check-in and registration, these events will help acquaint students with university resources, meet other international students, and learn how to get involved on campus.
Details will be provided upon arrival.
Students have the option to obtain the Sun Card or the Pitchfork Card when they arrive at ASU. The Sun Card is an official ASU student photo ID that allows you to complete in-person transactions and gain access to library and other services. The Pitchfork Card is two cards in one — it is an ASU student ID card and a MasterCard® check card.
Read more to understand the main differences between the Sun Card and the Pitchfork Card.
Get your Sun Card or Pitchfork Card as soon as you arrive at ASU. It is also highly recommended that you obtain an Arizona state ID card. Or, if you want to drive in the U.S., you need to get an Arizona driver license (instead of an Arizona state ID card).
