Discover Your Possibilities
We can help you receive the valuable experience you need to be prepared for the next steps of your career. There are countless ways for you to dive into your professional field and to personally get to know your professors and peers. For example, many of our rigorous academic programs have graduate assistant positions, student-run organizations, study abroad, travel assistance to conferences across the world, on-campus clinics, and much more. Every program is unique and tailored to what our students need to be successful.
How can you really know if ACU is the right place for you? By coming to visit! We’re eager to show you around campus and introduce you to the people, programs, facilities, innovative technologies and opportunities that most interest you. Join us for a program open house or simply come spend a day or a weekend in our welcoming community, and you’ll know if ACU is where you belong.
Each visitor, whether you’re here for a campus visit or an open house, will have the opportunity to meet with faculty and/or an admissions advisor where you can ask questions about the admissions process, scholarships and financial aid.
We can’t wait to show you around. We think you’ll feel at home.
