Key Benefits of the Annual Block Tuition PlanBecause ACU is committed to making its quality Christian higher education affordable, it has moved to an annual block tuition plan for full-time undergraduate students. A block (also known as “flat-rate”) tuition plan helps families shorten the time it takes students to earn a degree, plan better financially, save money each year, and reduce debt upon graduation.
Most private and many state universities already offer block tuition plans.
How Our Plan is Different
At most schools, block tuition allows students to take 12-18 hours of credits each long semester (fall and spring) for the same price. ACU’s annual block tuition plan allows students to take up to 36 hours across the entire year for one price.
The price includes all required student fees (academic enrichment and technology, academic services, healthcare, public safety, and student activity and recreation). Block tuition does not include room and board or course-specific and individual (parking, mailbox, etc.) fees.
The annual block tuition price for a full-time undergraduate student in the 2014-15 academic year will be $29,450. Part-time and other students paying on a per-credit-hour basis will pay $1,090 per credit hour.
Annual block tuition does not mean tuition is “frozen” until the student graduates; there can be tuition increases each year.
Annual block tuition is only for full-time undergraduate students.
Annual block tuition gives students more flexibility in scheduling, and an opportunity to take extra courses to enrich their degree/experience.
The plan is designed to help students graduate on time and save money. ACU is committed to working with students as we transition to this new tuition pricing model to ensure they have the opportunity to take full advantage of the block tuition plan or have the opportunity to receive an adjustment to their tuition charges.
Because it shortens the time students are in school, annual block tuition can dramatically reduce the cost of an ACU degree. A student who takes full advantage of ACU’s annual block tuition plan could save up to $17,500 on his/her college degree.
