ASU My Future

Next Steps for Returning Students

After you have been admitted, begin completing the items listed below so that you will be prepared to return to ASU. You may have already completed some steps if you recently attended ASU. 


  • Set-Up Your Technology Access Account

    After you apply for admission to the University, you will receive an email at the address provided on your application. This email contains the information needed to setup your ASU User Account. Students who attended ASU recently may not receive this email. If you have issues locating the email or did not receive it, you can get your user account by calling the Technology Service Center at 325-942-2911 or email and they will be able to provide you with your account information. Be prepared to provide additional information for identification like your CID.


    After setting up your account, you can access RamPort.

  • Get Advised

    Connect with your advisor to register for classes. You can find your advisor when you visit the advising website.

    As a returning student, you will not need to attend an Orientation to be advised and register. Advisors are able to advise students over the phone and via email.

  • Make Housing Arrangements

    If you choose to live on campus, complete our Housing Application and pay the $100 application fee.

    Some students may have the option of living off campus. If you choose to stay off campus and you have a hold from the housing office, you need to fill out the Request for Exemptions Form to have the hold removed. Students may request an exemption for many reasons including being 21 years of age or older, enrolling part-time, or residing with a parent, grandparent, or sibling. 

  • Register for Classes

    Once your advising hold is removed, you’ll register using RamPort. Check any holds in RamPort prior to your registration day to ensure you do not have a hold which will prohibit you from registering for classes.

    Visit the Academic Calendar for the registration date for returning students. You are encouraged to register as soon as registration opens as courses will fill up quickly.

    For more information, contact the Registrar’s Office at 325-942-2043.

  • Complete your FAFSA

    Complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)online and designate Angelo State University as your receiving institution.

    We encourage all ASU students to complete the FAFSA to help determine the types of financial aid that are available to you. Get help by following these FAFSA Tips from ASU’s Office of Financial Aid.

  • Complete ASU’s General Scholarship Application

    ASU offers more than 270 general scholarships that are not tied to specific degree programs. Submit the General Scholarship Application to be eligible. At this time, all general scholarships for the academic year 2020-2021 have been awarded.

  • Get Help from the VETS Center

    ASU’s Veterans Educational and Transitional Services (VETS) Center assists veterans, active duty service members and their dependents. Ask about your benefits and the types of financial assistance available.

  • Submit Your Final Official Transcripts

    If you attended another college or university after leaving ASU, contact your previous institution’s Registrar’s Office to request a copy of your final official transcript. This confirms you were in good academic standing. Your previous institution may either provide you a hard copy in a sealed envelope or send it electronically. Electronic transcripts are preferred and can allow for faster processing of the application.

  • Get Your ASU OneCard and Parking Permit

    The ASU OneCard is the official identification card for ASU students. You’ll use it with your campus meal plan and for access to the residence hall buildings. You’ll also need it to verify that you are a student at some campus events and activities.

    If you plan to drive to your classes or park a vehicle at your residence hall, you’ll need to purchase an ASU parking permit.

  • Get Your Books

    Look in RamPort or refer to your course syllabuses for information about the textbooks you need. You can order the books online from the ASU Bookstore.

    • 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.

  • Complete the Haven and AlcoholEdu courses

    As part of maintaining a safe and healthy community Angelo State University requires all incoming students to complete the AlcoholEdu and Haven training courses.

    Information on how to take these courses will be sent to your email address. 

    Please contact the Office of Title IX Compliance, should you have any questions at 325-942-2047.

  • Attend Rambunctious Weekend

    Rambunctious Weekend is Angelo State’s welcome weekend that helps kick off the fall semester every year. Students are invited to participate in three days’ worth of activities to help them meet other students and transition to college life.

    Activities vary from team building exercises and a student organization tailgate to a spirit rally and a barbecue with water inflatables at the ASU Lake House. You can pick and choose the events that interest you, but you definitely don’t want to miss out on this great introduction to college life!
