A degree from a private university may seem out of reach. However, at a tuition rate of $450/credit hour, the Online Program is a convenient and affordable option. ACU’s Financial Aid team is ready to answer questions and work with students seeking to finance their education.
To be eligible for federal financial aid a student must:

- Not be in default on any student loans
- Meet selective service registration requirements
