on assistantships, scholarships, and fellowships. Information about loans,
grants, and work-study opportunities is also available through the Graduate
College at www.asu.edu/graduate/financial.
When is the best time to prepare for graduate school?
Its never too soon to be preparing for graduate school. Undergraduate
students are well-advised to maintain a high grade-point

and work with faculty on scholarly projects. The faculty at your undergraduate
institution are an excellent source of information on graduate programs,
and they are the best people to ask for letters of reference.

Application deadlines differ for each program. Check with the graduate advisor
in the academic program to which you are applying.
