New Student Programs

ACU’s New Student Programs is here to ensure that all new Wildcats and their families begin their journey at ACU with a comprehensive introduction to the Wildcat life.

One of the first steps for new students and their families begins at Orientation, where the Admissions office provides an introduction to ACU and its academic programs, student services, and college life.

After orientation, all new Wildcats will need to attend Wildcat Week. Wildcat Week is our extended orientation program that provides students with opportunities for spiritual growth, academic success and social excellence, while making Abilene their new home.

New Student Programs offers other ways to get involved once school starts such as Family Weekend and The Cabinet. As an upperclassman, you can give back by applying to be a Wildcat Week Student Director, member of the Steering Committee, or Wildcat Leader.

Our website provides you with information about our programs, as well as resources to assist you in navigating ACU. If you have any other questions about ACU, we’re here to help! Call us at (325) 674-6337 or email us at
