Some ACU policies may vary with other schools and universities. Each student is responsible to understand and follow the immigration information given to them by their sponsoring institution and the Department of Homeland Security. Advice for each student depends on his or her particular situation. The best way to receive accurate information as an international student at ACU is to speak with an advisor from ACU about your situation. U.S. immigration regulations are subject to change at any time.
The immigration information in this website is general and is intended for current and prospective students and scholars of Abilene Christian University. It should not be taken as legal advice. Please contact an immigration attorney if legal advice is needed.
