Abilene Christian University is a diverse, welcoming, academically rigorous community redefining what it means to be a Christian university in the 21st century. Our online degree programs were designed with busy working adults like you in mind — structured to let you focus on one-two classes at a time during seven-week terms. You might be somewhere else geographically, but as a student of ACU Online, you are part of a vibrant, virtual, Christ-centered community.
It is our goal to make the transfer process and identifying a new degree program, as smooth as possible. We will work hard to utilize your previous coursework and examinations in our academic evaluation so that you have the experience you want - the fastest, least expensive path to your educational goals.
*Students must have all official transcripts on file by the end of their 2nd 7-week session. Courses will be applied to the degree program upon evaluation of the official transcript.
Students can transfer in up to 96 credits towards the program and are required to complete 40 credit hours towards their degree at ACU. No more
than 66 semester hours of credit may be from a community, junior or other two-year college. Reduce time and cost in three ways: Credit Transfer, Course Exams, or Military Training
We have an easy way for you to see your transfer equivalencies. Our transfer portal will allow you to find courses offered at other schools that are preapproved to transfer as ACU courses.
