From Abilene and Dallas to the rest of the world
developing meaningful relationships through fellowship
Living, Learning, and Faith in the Lone Star State
Located about 150 miles west of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Abilene has been ACU’s home since 1906. It’s a friendly city of 117,000 people that provides cultural, entertainment, and support programs and services normally associated with cities twice its size.
In 2012, ACU took a bold step toward expanding its educational and Christian influence by establishing collaboration space in Dallas’s CitySquare: a faith-based, non-profit, human and community development corporation. In 2016, ACU strengthened its presence in Dallas by achieving branch status. Dallas is home to ACU's online graduate programs, with a growing portfolio of master's, doctorate, and certificate programs.
Even if your educational journey at ACU doesn’t take you through Abilene or Dallas, know that students, faculty, and staff at both locations wholeheartedly support your success.
Abilene Christian University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral degrees.

"I’ll always be grateful to ACU for a strong Christian education. Christian education, especially higher education, is critically important because it wrestles with tough questions about faith and how it applies to and interacts with many different areas of study. After I graduated and went on to a secular law school, I realized how much I missed studying our laws through the lens of a rich faith tradition."
