Application overview

How to apply

Step 1

Mind the deadlines

Prospective students should be mindful of deadlines and work to ensure that a complete Barrett application is on file by the appropriate date. A Barrett application is complete when:

  • It has been submitted, not just saved.
  • Both required letters of recommendation have been received by Barrett.
  • The student has been admitted to an Arizona State University undergraduate degree program at the ASU Downtown, Polytechnic, Tempe or West campus.*

*Though a Barrett application may be started and even submitted before ASU admission is conferred, it cannot go to evaluation until university acceptance is formally awarded. Apply to ASU accordingly.

Students who submit an application in time for a particular deadline will receive a short grace period for missing letters of recommendation to be received and for ASU admission to be processed.  

Step 2

Apply to ASU

Students interested in Barrett must first apply to Arizona State University and then may begin the separate and free Barrett application.

Transfer students should apply to ASU at least 4 - 6 weeks before their preferred Barrett deadline.

ASU Application

When a student applies for ASU admission, an ASURITE ID is issued. Students must then activate their ASURITE ID, which includes identifying a password. The ASURITE ID and password are required to begin the free Barrett application.

Step 3

Submit your Barrett application

Prospective students may apply only once to Barrett for any given semester.

The Barrett application does not need to be completed in one sitting. A student may start, save their work, exit and then return at a later date to finish and submit the application ahead of the appropriate deadline. After starting the application, a student may re-access it via the “Apply now” button.
