I'm sure that if you just use whichever of the above is the best fit  
and add \usepackage{mathptmx} and tell them it was formatted in the  
appropriate size of ``Times New Roman'' you'll at least get far enough  
for them to give you specific feedback on what needs to be changed.

(Seems to me if they're going to say other styles are acceptable, but  
the ASU formatting rules over-ride then they should have a list of  
what the exceptions are for each style)
