Many resources. One investment. 

At Abilene Christian University, we know education and  affordability are important factors when choosing a college and navigating financial aid alone can be confusing. We’re committed to making the ACU experience affordable by offering a block tuition model, institutional financial aid, no-interest payment plans, and access to a team of financial aid professionals to help guide you through the process.

100 percent of incoming students receive some form of merit- or need-based financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study. Below are sources of financial aid available to you as a student
