International Undergraduate Students
Coming to a new city and campus may seem daunting at first, but you’ll quickly feel at home in our warm and intentional community. We’ve assembled the steps and resources necessary to make your transition—and your learning—as smooth as possible.
International Graduate Students
The high-quality education at ACU is marked by a community of students and faculty devoted to wonder and creative exploration. To join one of our graduate programs, review the program-specific guidelines and submit your application at least six months in advance.
Office of International Students and Visiting Scholars
International students often have unique questions and situations that require cross-cultural expertise. Our international student services provide resources related to immigration, cultural opportunities and ongoing support for international students on campus.
Financial Aid for International Students
We seek to invest in your success in the same way that you invest in your education. ACU provides robust financial aid for international students, including access to our innovative block tuition model, the Wildcat Pay Plan and the Wildcat Housing Grant for up to two years of residential housing costs. In addition, international students are eligible for up to 20 hours per week of on-campus employment to help supplement your financial needs.
Scholarships for International Students
You will be welcomed and celebrated from the moment you are admitted with the President’s International Scholarship, a guaranteed four-year award for international students. You may also be eligible to apply for other competitive scholarships based on your academic interests and extracurricular involvement.
