ACU Grant

The ACU Grant program is designed to help students with additional need. In order to be considered, students must complete the FAFSA annually.

Texas Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG)

ACU awards TEG as part of its total grant and scholarship commitment to eligible students. Students must be a resident of Texas with financial need and cannot be a recipient of an athletic scholarship or be enrolled in a theological degree program. Contact Student Financial Services with questions about how TEG might have been used to fund your awards. The state of Texas permits for some hardship provisions which can occasionally allow students to receive aid when they might not otherwise qualify.
