How to Apply

When you apply to ACU, we recommend that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) once it becomes available on October 1 (ACU school code: 003537) to be considered for need-based grants and loans.

If you plan to use VA benefits, you can review further steps through ACU’s Office of Veterans Affairs.

Financial Aid Solutions for Online Students

Further payment options are available to ensure that your online courses work toward your long-term purpose. You can choose to stagger your tuition throughout the term by enrolling in a Wildcat Pay Plan, or you may opt for the Pay By Course Plan. Under the latter, your tuition balances will be due by 5 p.m. CST on the Friday prior to the first day of class.
