A university experience designed for today’s learners

Learning is a universal human experience, but how we learn is personal. ASU strives to design a university experience that can fit within the diverse needs of 21st-century students. While some students seek a fully on-campus living and learning experience, others enroll through online offerings providing them the flexibility to balance the goal of earning a degree alongside their other priorities. Regardless of modality, all ASU degrees and experiences are customizable to meet students where they are on their academic journey.
