ASU Online Student FAQ’s+
Here are some commonly asked questions about learning online. Don’t see an answer you’re looking for? An ASU Enrollment Coach is ready to help!
Will my diploma and transcript say ‘Arizona State University’ or ‘Arizona State University Online’?
Your diploma and transcripts will say Arizona State University — just like students studying on campus. ASU’s online students are an important part of ASU’s student body. Every year, hundreds of ASU Online students travel from across the nation to participate in graduation ceremonies. We hope to see you there!
Are online programs comparable in quality to on-campus programs?
Yes. The same faculty and instructors that teach on campus also teach ASU Online courses. This means that the rigor, quality of the content and course load is the same as on-campus classes.
Can you tell me about the “classroom” experience?
ASU Online is designed with you in mind. ASU instructors and faculty use a variety of methods to share materials, create opportunities for student interaction and monitor their progress throughout the course. One of the benefits of completing your degree online is flexibility. A few courses may require specific log-on times for certain activities or assignments, but most courses have assignments and due dates so students can look ahead and complete them at a comfortable pace.
How often can I start classes? How much should I plan to study?
ASU Online offers six starts dates per year. The majority of the courses are 7.5 weeks in length and most students take 1–2 classes at a time. While every student studies differently, you should plan to spend 15-18 hours a week on coursework for one class.
Does Discount Tire offer additional education assistance to help pay for tuition at ASU?
Yes! The Discount Tire & ASU Scholarship is just one way to fund your education. Check with your Discount Tire Human Resources Team to see if you’re eligible for tuition reimbursement as well as additional scholarships that may exist within Discount Tire.
