ACU Grant   

To recognize students holistically, ACU considers academic achievements in the classroom as well as on standardized tests.  Merit-based awards range from $3,000 per year to $14,000 per year.  Best yet, ACU will notify you of your scholarship award with your acceptance letter to the university.  If you have not completed your application or been admitted to ACU, we encourage you to use our freshman net cost calculator to estimate the academic scholarship amount for which you may qualify.

In addition to any merit-based scholarship awarded, grants are provided to students that demonstrate unmet financial need after all other resources available to pay for college are considered. To be considered for an ACU Grant a student must complete the FAFSA each year. Based on the information provided, ACU Grants are awarded to make an ACU education as affordable as possible.

Texas Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG)   
ACU awards TEG as part of its total grant and scholarship commitment to eligible students. Students must be a resident of Texas with financial need and cannot be a recipient of an athletic scholarship or be enrolled in a theological degree program. Contact Student Financial Services with questions about how TEG might have been used to fund your awards.
