Understanding tuition and fees

To help make the transfer process as seamless as possible, ASU will ensure that all current FIDM students who continue at ASU FIDM will pay no more than the total amount they paid in tuition and fees at FIDM in the 2022–2023 academic year.

Because the total cost of attendance is dependent on each student’s individual circumstances, all FIDM students will receive individual advisement regarding their cost of attendance during the transfer process.

ASU FIDM cares about your well-being

Your health and well-being are crucial to your success, which is why you have access to emotional and mental health resources that you can use starting now, including: 

  • Open Call and Open Chat — a no-cost 24/7/365 global mental health support system available in multiple languages. 

We take mental well-being and confidentiality seriously at ASU. To create an account and learn more about these resources, visit

Additionally, personal counseling remains available with FIDM counselors and is accessible through Canvas.

How to begin the transfer process

To express interest in transferring to ASU, fill out the request for information form to receive individualized counseling from an ASU admission representative who can help you begin the process of enrolling at ASU FIDM. You can begin at ASU FIDM as early as June 2023.
