ASU Veteran's Commitment Plan

Plan for your future at ASU.

Arizona State University commends you for considering joining the military and serving your country. The skills and discipline acquired through service to your country will help prepare you to succeed in life. However, if college is also on your list of goals, ASU is here to help you through the process of entering higher education. Launched in 2023, ASU’s Veteran’s Commitment Plan is available to new Arizona high school graduates who meet our assured admission criteria, are Arizona residents and enlist in the U.S. military directly after high school.

ASU Veteran's Commitment Plan Eligibility requirements

Enrolling at ASU

Students must enroll with ASU when they decide to conclude their service. Students who are involuntarily extended will not be removed from this program. Students that voluntarily extend their enlistment are still eligible, though may require additional paperwork at intervals and/or when leaving service. Students who forfeit guaranteed admissions are still eligible to apply to ASU through the traditional application process.
