About this estimate
*The undergraduate tuition estimate is based on the block tuition fee that includes all required fees and allows student to take from 24 to 36 credit hours per year. The ESL tuition estimate is based on the same plan minus a 50% discount for ESL classes. The graduate tuition estimate is based on 24 credit hours per year at a rate of $1026 per credit hour. See a detailed breakdown of fees.

The above figures are based on the assumption that you live in a residence hall or in University Park Apartments and eat in the cafeteria. (Single undergraduate students with less than 60 semester hours of credit are required to live on campus unless they are 21 years of age or older. Those who have completed at least 60 semester hours have the option of living off campus if they prefer.) Costs may increase if you live off campus and pay utilities, buy food, etc.

The following estimate includes all ACU fees but does not include such expenses as travel to and from one's home country, vacation travel, personal expenses, clothing or the support of additional persons.

Note: It is important to understand that tuition increases each year and that living and insurance expenses may increase each year as well.

Payment of Accounts
Your account for tuition and fees, room, board and other expenses due to the university must be paid in full for the entire semester at the time of enrollment. For an additional fee, a payment plan may be arranged.
