Special off-campus offerings, Study Abroad activities or
intercollege courses will be subject to additional costs and
require an advisor's approval.

(one personal, one academic or job-related).

Honors Program Admission
Chris Willerton, Director
ACU Box 29142; Abilene, Texas 79699-9142
Hardin Administration Building, Room 216
Students may not register for Honors Program classes until they are
formally admitted to the program. Applications are available in the
program office or on the Web. Freshman applicants will be accepted
unconditionally if they satisfy the following criteria: (1) they must
either have a high school grade point average of 3.75 or rank in the
top 10 percent of their high school class; and (2) they must have either
an SAT score of at least 1220 or an ACT score of at least 27; and they
must submit a satisfactory HP Application Essay. Instructions and the
online application are at www.acu.edu/honors. Advanced students
(including transfers) need a solid record in their previous college work.
Students whose qualifications are slightly below the standard may
petition to enter the program on probation. These students should
submit a letter describing their grades and other evidence of high
ability and motivation (e.g., special awards or success in honors
courses). To stay in the Honors Program, a student must maintain a
cumulative GPA of 3.2 as a freshman, 3.3 as a sophomore and 3.4 as a
junior. Graduation with Honors Program distinction requires a 3.5.
International Student Admission
Kevin Kehl, Director
Center for International and Intercultural Education
ACU Box 28226, Abilene, Texas 79699-8226 USA
Hardin Administration Building, Room 215
International students applying for admission to Abilene Christian
University are given the same consideration as other students, except
that they must also submit scores on the Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL) and show evidence of ability to understand and
use English sufficiently well to succeed in their work at ACU. The
Center for International and Intercultural Education issues the
1-20 form, Certificate of Eligibility to international students
admitted to the university.
International and international transfer applicants must arrange to
have an official transcript in English (mailed by the registrar to ACU
at the above address) from the high school of graduation and each
university previously attended. (To ensure evaluation, the transfer
applicant should provide a catalog and syllabus in English.)
Students enrolled at ACU may concurrently register for courses
at Hardin-Simmons University and McMurry University. The three
universities have entered into an agreement whereby students
who are matriculated in any one of the universities may register
for courses at the other universities. This is especially helpful when
a required course is not available at the university where the
student is pursuing his or her degree. Courses taken by ACU
students through intercollege enrollment count toward degree
requirements, provided approval has been secured in advance.
It is the student's responsibility to make certain that courses taken
through this arrangement will satisfy his or her individual degree
requirements. (Courses taken under the intercollege agreement
are not considered as transfer courses.)
