ACU’s administration and Board of Trustees are committed to providing a high quality education at an affordable price. Even with the price increase to $717 per credit hour ($21,510 for 30 hours), ACU is priced well below the median tuition rate for a private college or university ($26,273 in 2009).

Even so, ACU realizes there may be returning students who will struggle with the rising cost of attendance and in response has created the Application for Additional Financial Assistance to award an additional $500,000 to those in need for the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 semesters.

Eligibility Requirements

Returning undergraduate students (excluding BAS) seeking additional financial assistance must:

1) Complete the Application for Additional Financial Assistance at

2) File the 2010-11 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at

3) Submit all required documentation (e.g., Institutional Verification Form, Disclosure Statement and Residency Affidavit [DSRA], etc.).                                                                                                                                                                                                       Forms are available at

4) Participate in the Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program at the annual loan limit for their grade level ($3,500 up to 29 hours; $4,500 up to 59 hours; $5,500 greater than 60 hours).

The 2010-11 Application for Additional Financial Aid Assistance is due by April 30, 2010. Students requesting additional aid will be notified by email to their ACU student account by   5 p.m. on Friday, May 7, 2010.
