ASU My Future

Hello, Parents

We want to welcome you to the Ram Family! Here at Angelo State, we recognize the important role you play in your student’s choice in higher education.

We’ve outlined information below so that you can help your student every step of the way, no matter what stage of the admission process they’re in. Let’s get started!

  • Parents of High School Juniors

    We are pleased that you and your student are already starting to plan ahead. Getting familiar with the college admission process is a great way to feel comfortable with this important transition you’ll be facing in the near future.

    As you help your student identify career interests and research academic programs, you may also want to review this college planning information:

    • Checklist for High School Students
    • Standardized Test Preparation

    Your student’s junior year is also a great time to visit campus and request more information from Angelo State.

  • Parents of Applicants

    As your student begins the application process, you can help them stay organized and on task. Here are a few ways you can help:

    1. Begin the Application Process. Review ASU’s admission requirements and start identifying all the admission materials needed to apply.

      We do not have an application deadline, but the more quickly an application is completed, the sooner your student will receive an admissions decision. Additional opportunities become available when your student is admitted.

    2. Find Your Admissions Counselor. Your student already has an ASU admissions counselor assigned to help you both navigate the college admissions process. Once you identify your counselor, contact him or her with any questions you may have.

    3. Plan a Campus Visit. This is a great way to get more familiar with Angelo State! You can choose to attend an ASU admissions event or you can schedule a campus tour on a day that fits your schedule. 
  • Parents of Current Students

    It is the goal of Angelo State University and the Ram Family Connection to promote student success and assist in navigating any challenges your student may encounter. Sign up for our monthly newsletter for tips and event-related news. 

    And don’t forget to save the date for your student’s Angelo State graduation

  • Parents of Admitted Students

    Congratulations! Let us be the first to welcome your student and the rest of your family into the Ram Family. Now that your student is admitted, there are a lot of exciting next steps to complete before the first class meets.

    Next Steps

    Also be sure to keep in touch with your admissions counselor. He or she will be available to answer any questions you may have about your student’s transition to campus.   

  • Parents of Students Taking Dual Credit

    By taking dual credit courses, your student will be getting a head-start in college. We wanted to provide you with some more information to keep in mind while your student is taking dual credit courses. 

    • Dual credit courses are college-level courses which could affect their future academic standing and financial aid eligibility.
    • If the student is having issues with their courses, they should speak with their high school guidance counselor as there is a deadline to withdraw from courses.
    • You can look up how courses transfer to ASU by visiting our transfer equivalency tables.
    • To understand how these courses fit into an ASU degree plan, please refer to the Undergraduate Catalog or speak with an ASU academic advisor. You will also be advised at orientation regarding how these courses apply to a degree plan.
    • If your student is taking dual credit through ASU’s dual credit program, they do not need to request a transcript to be sent to ASU.
    • If your student is taking dual credit through another college or university, they need to request their transcript be sent to ASU. The dual credit transcript must be sent by the college, not the high school. We recommend that students have this transcript sent to ASU as soon as they apply to ASU. If additional dual credit courses are taken after this is received, another transcript should be sent showing additional courses.
