3 Reasons to Complete the FAFSA NOW!

3 Reasons to Complete the FAFSA NOW!

Every year on the first of January, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) becomes available for students and parents to complete for the upcoming award year. While this may not be nearly as exciting as the start of a New Year, it is a very important form that all students attending college should complete. The students I meet with often ask if they need to fill out a FAFSA. My answer each and every time is YES! There are so many reasons why, but here are my top three: It’s free! Completing a FAFSA is completely free and the application is getting easier and more simplified each year. Today’s FAFSA is done completely online and only takes about 30 minutes to complete. You could qualify even if you think you don’t! So many times I have heard the phrase “We make too much money” or “I don’t qualify”. The simple fact is there is no income cut-off level for federal aid. Several things are factored in to the calculation and you won’t know until you complete the FAFSA. Completing the FAFSA is also our application for state and certain institutional aid. Don’t lose out on your access to millions of dollars in aid! Sooner is better Most institutional and state aid is awarded on a first come first serve basis; with priority deadlines that are as early as March for the 2013-2014 academic year! Don’t have your taxes done yet? That’s ok! Simply submit your FAFSA with an estimate of your tax information. Once you have your taxes completed you can go back in and make any adjustments you need. Completing your FAFSA is important and at times may seem overwhelming. If you...

Fall Travel in Admissions

Fall Travel in Admissions

As the busy travel season comes to an end for the Admissions office at ACU I want to reflect on the experiences I had while promoting our school to prospective students. Working in the Admissions office at Arizona Christian University gives me the unique opportunity to meet with a wide-range of Christian high school students. It is our job to go out and recruit the high school students who would be a good fit for ACU. We do this by attending college fairs, going on high school visits, and also hosting visit days on our campus. The fall is the busiest season of the year.  For most high school seniors, this is the time when they will make their final decisions of which school they want to apply to.  Many students apply to one or more schools before they make their final decision on which one they will attend.  For me, this busy fall recruiting season included a trip to Portland, Oregon. I grew up in Portland and moved out to Phoenix after I graduated from college.  I do miss aspects of the Northwest, but one thing I definitely do not miss is the rain! I really enjoy living in Phoenix where there are usually 300 days of sunshine a year. But I always love going on out-of-state recruiting trips, especially when they are to my hometown.  One of the best things about going on a recruiting trip, other than meeting with students who are on fire for the Lord, is being able to promote a school that I love and believe in. On my trip to Portland I...

ACU Hits Record Enrollment Again – Up 47 Percent Since 2010

ACU Hits Record Enrollment Again – Up 47 Percent Since 2010

Arizona Christian University is excited to announce record enrollment for Fall 2012 – an increase to 682 total students, up 47 percent in the past two years. Total enrollment in Fall 2006 was just 308 students, meaning ACU has more than doubled in size in the past six years at its northeast Phoenix campus. “We are thrilled that students are flocking to the opportunity in Arizona to attend an affordable, Christ-centered, non-profit university with a variety of degree programs to prepare students for leadership in our world,” said ACU President Len Munsil. “Our campus improvements, expanded academic and athletic programs, and commitment to traditional classroom instruction and mentoring of our students is drawing enormous interest locally and around the United States.” While 74 percent of ACU students are from Arizona, students come from a total of 31 states, including Alaska, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York and Florida, and eight foreign countries, including Thailand, Russia, Brazil and Uganda. More than 200 students are brand new this year at ACU. There are 516 students in the traditional undergraduate program – up 15 percent from 448 last fall — while 166 students are either in the degree completion program, or attend ACU through dual or concurrent enrollment. ACU’s growth the past two years has been fueled by increased visibility, including its name change and dinner events featuring former President George W. Bush and the Rev. Franklin Graham. In addition, every full-time ACU student receives an iPad. Last year ACU was re-accredited for the maximum 10 years and approved to offer new degree programs in biology, communication and political science. New sports include...
