Abilene Christian University is a diverse, welcoming, academically rigorous community redefining what it means to be a Christian university in the 21st century.

At ACU, faith is part of everything we do. It’s woven into our 70+ majors, countless co-curriculars and vibrant campus life. Here, you are challenged intellectually while developing spiritually, all in preparation for successful Christian service and leadership.

We're excited that you're interested in transferring to Abilene Christian! ACU offers rolling admissions for transfer students, with admission decisions made within three weeks of students completing their application. There is no application fee for transfer applicants. We accept applications for summer, spring and fall semesters.


Steps to enroll for all prospective transferring students:

  • Complete an Application for Admission. Submit your official transcript(s) to the Office of Admissions: ACU Box 29000, Abilene, Texas 79699-9000.
  • Submit student immunization form. All students enrolling at ACU must show documentation of their meningitis vaccination, taken within the last five years.

Students who have completed more than 24 transferable hours will also submit the following items:

  • All college transcripts.

Students who have completed fewer than 24 transferable hours will also submit the following items:

  • High school transcript or GED diploma to the Office of Admissions. 
  • ACT/SAT scores to the Office of Admissions. Our ACT school code is 4050 and our SAT code is 6001. 
  • All college transcripts.

Before enrolling:

  • Upon being granted admission, you will be given access to your myACU account, where you can pay your $350 enrollment deposit, submit your housing preference (if applicable) and select a meal plan.

*First-semester transfer students applying for the Spring semester can still complete their transfer application, but will not be able to submit an official transcript until they have completed a full semester in college. If provisionally admitted, students must submit their official transcript in order to be reviewed to confirm their admittance. Since it may take a few weeks for us to receive an official transcript, we will accept unofficial grade reports, printed off the institution's website, to make our final decision. Students still need to submit official transcripts before the first day of class.
