For any and all courses. Graduate and undergraduate. Full time or part time. That’s it. No technology fees or other per-credit fees that pad the price tag.
That means a full ACU undergraduate degree costs about what the average private college will set you back for your first three semesters. And that’s if you don’t qualify for our tuition discounts, which most students do.
Over 90% of Anchor Christian University students qualify for the frontline ministry partner discount. Even if you think you don’t qualify, ask!
Federal Grants and Loans
ACU does not currently participate in the Federal Title IV financial aid program (PELL Grants, Federal Student Loans). The overhead cost that would be passed on to students in the form of increased tuition and fees would wipe out the value of applying PELL Grants to the top line cost for most students.
This also means students will not receive a 1098-T form from Anchor Christian University to file with their taxes — or their parents’ taxes. Please consult your tax advisor about whether ACU tuition may be applied to relevant tax deductions and/or credits.
More importantly, there are current and future risks to the opportunity to deliver biblical education that come with the dynamics of regulatory oversight of that program. While the leadership team is investigating avenues to open access to grants for ACU students, our commitment is to keep top-line costs accessible and to protect our ability to amplify the disciple-making mandate of the local church globally.
Some ACU students may be eligible to access Title IV grants and loans through our partnership with accredited schools that participate in federal programs.
My future employer will care where I went to school.
Most employers don’t look at your GPA, and they don’t care about your alma mater. In fact, a recent Gallup survey reported that only 9% of employers place importance on a student’s graduating university, while 84% cited a candidate’s skills and field knowledge as “very important” in making hiring decisions.
