Many resources. One investment. 

At Abilene Christian University, we understand that education is a significant investment for our students and their families. We’re committed to making the ACU experience as affordable as possible for everyone by offering an innovative tuition model, institutional financial aid, no-interest payment plans, a pre-paid tuition option, resources to external funding, and access to a team of financial aid professionals to help guide you through the process. 

More than 98 percent of incoming students received some form of merit- or need-based financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.
