Where Our Students Succeed

“I felt the ACU difference before I even applied to graduate school. I always felt truly cared for as a prospective student as I was continuously being reached out to asking if I had questions before, during, and even after the application process! This was reassuring to me – it didn’t feel like I was just a number to them. I am so thankful to be apart of this community and have continually felt that sense of belonging throughout my time as a student.”

While each graduate program has specific admission requirements, all candidates must:

  • complete an application with the required fee and
  • submit official transcripts showing completion of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4-point scale.

The following programs use a Central Application Service (CAS). You will not need to complete an additional ACU application.

  • Occupational Therapy (OTCAS)
  • Speech-Language Pathology (CSDCAS)

We believe everyone should have access to a transformative education. Reflecting this, ACU supports our graduate students with multiple financial aid solutions, from loans and on-campus employment to scholarships and assistantships by department.
