  • Submit Your Final Official Transcripts Transcripts Submit Your Final Official Transcripts

    Submit Your Final Official Transcripts

    After you have completed high school, request a copy of your Final Official Transcript (contains graduation date and official stamp/signature).

    Your school may either provide you a hard copy in a sealed envelope or the school can send it electronically. For security reasons, do not email transcripts. Transcripts can be mailed to:

    Office of Admissions
    ASU Station #11014
    San Angelo, TX 76909

    If you participated in dual credit, you will also need to request a Final Official College Transcript directly from the college or university where you received the credit. If you need help finding out how to order your dual credit transcript, please visit our Transfer Transcript Order Webpage for more information and links to order transcripts from Texas colleges and universities. Electronic transcripts sent directly from the college or university are preferred and can allow for faster processing.

    • Understanding Your Tuition and Fees

      Tuition is the cost to attend classes at Angelo State University. We work to keep tuition affordable while providing a quality education to our students.

      Here are some quick facts about tuition: 

      • Tuition costs vary depending on the number of semester credit hours you are enrolled in.
      • To be considered a full-time student, you must register for 12 or more credit hours (about three or four classes).
      • If you are registered for fewer than 12 credit hours, you will be considered a part-time student. Part-time status can affect the student financial aid that is available to you.

      NOTE: If you enroll in courses during ASU student orientation but do not attend ASU, you will still be held responsible for tuition and fees associated with those courses unless you officially withdraw from the university. You must withdraw prior to 5:00pm CST on the last business day before classes begin.

      For more information about the costs of attending ASU and to estimate your tuition expenses, please view our Cost Information.
