Student Opportunities

Junior level acceptance

While we welcome all who desire to serve God, we view ministry and mission work as a high calling, demanding high standards. Therefore all students who want to receive a degree from the Department of Bible, Missions and Ministry must complete an acceptance process, usually during the sophomore year. This process is intended to ensure that ACU graduates are equipped for the demands of ministry. Requirements include demonstration of academic ability, satisfactory completion of psychological testing, recommendations from church leaders and ACU faculty, and a personal essay.
