Arizona State University Merit Aid

mb2005mb2005 Registered User Posts: 39 Junior Member
I was recently accepted in ASU with a major in Aerospace Engineering. Before I applied, I used the Merit aid estimator to see what chances I had for merit scholarships. I have a 4.0 unweighted GPA, recieved a 31 on the ACT and I am in the top 10% of my grade. The estimator told me I could receive $15,000. While I know this is not guaranteed, I’m confused because I don’t see anything about merit aid on the “My ASU” portal.

Am I missing something or did I just not recieve any merit scholarships like the estimator said I could? Was indication of merit aid obvious on other students portals after they were accepted?

    Wondering the same thing, also checked the estimator and was told I could be receiving a generous amount of merit aid, but I have heard nothing about it so far. Nothing on my portal. I vaguely recall reading somewhere that letters about merit aid are supposed to come in the mail a few weeks after your receive your acceptance letter... so I guess they could still be coming, but for me I was accepted in early September and it's now mid-October.

    They'll send out merit offers after the official notifications of acceptances. Don't worry.

    I was accepted mid-September & I see my aid under Financial aid, next to "renewable programs status" there's a link that says "more information" when you click that it shows your awards (dean/provost/president etc) and the amount for each year
