How It Works

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are eligible for the Frontline Education Program, you are able to attend Arizona State University Online and select from any of their more than 80 undergraduate degree programs. 

The program covers tuition, lab and other course fees, and books up to $325 per academic session. Associates who apply will need to pay the $70 application fee.

Once you are enrolled in classes on a degree-seeking path for an ASU academic session, have completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have a complete financial aid file, you will be eligible to receive up to $325 through the ASU Sun Devil Bookstore online to purchase course materials, including physical or digital textbooks, and excludes renting textbooks and any other categories of purchases.This includes the cost of shipping orders to you, if required. 

You will receive an email to your ASU email address containing instructions for purchasing, as well as a deadline by which all course materials must be purchased for the session. As long as you maintain eligibility for the program and enroll in classes, you will receive this email prior to every session in which you are enrolled. 

Occasionally, courses will require materials not available in the ASU Follett Store. This can occur for a number of reasons. In this situation, you should contact Aramark HR in order to determine how these materials can be covered by the Frontline Education Program prior to making any purchases.

Eligible and interested associates can apply for rolling admission to any one of the following ASU Online session start dates: 

  • Fall 2020 B - October 12
  • Spring 2021 A - January 11
  • Spring 2021 B - March 15 
  • Summer 2021 A - May 17
  • Summer 2021 B - June 30
  • Fall 2021 A - August 19

If you apply to ASU and are not admitted, you still have the opportunity to participate in the Frontline Education Program through ASU’s Earned Admission Pathway, which allows program participants to gain admission to ASU Online by successfully completing a series of online courses that count towards their degree. 

ASU does accept transfer credits from other institutions. An enrollment coach will review and assist you with application of any previous college credit towards a Bachelor’s degree. 

The U.S. Department of Education awards more than $120 billion in financial aid each year. With the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), you could be offered thousands in grants, scholarships, and low-interest loans, which could go toward expenses not covered by the Prime Scholars Program, such as books and supplies. You must complete the FAFSA and complete a financial aid file with ASU in order to participate in the Prime Scholars Program.
