International Students Financial Aid
We realize that going to college is an investment. Each year, ACU awards more than $96 million in financial aid through scholarships, loans, grants and work-study, and our web site is a great place to find out more information related to the expense of an ACU education and financial aid that may be available to you.
These are the most common scholarships offered for international students. Also, as an international student, you can work part time in the university. Although uncommon, other scholarships may be available for those with outstanding leadership, academic, service, musical, or athletic ability. Once you have submitted all of your application documents, we would be happy to talk with you about these and other scholarships and financial aid for which you may be eligible.
However, it is important to consider that there is not scholarship or group of scholarships that will cover all expenses to study at ACU. Even with the best scholarships and working on campus, the student is responsible to cover a significant portion of the costs. There’s no roundabout way to say this (though some may try) – college is expensive. Regardless of the university, the price tag is likely going to be more than you’re accustomed to paying on an annual basis.
The good news is once you have a few minutes, or weeks, to digest the total at the bottom of your financial aid award, you’ll realize the return on your investment has the potential to be millions of dollars throughout your lifetime.
