ACU Announces First Fall Commencement

Arizona Christian University is excited to announce the addition of a second commencement ceremony for the 2015-2016 academic year on December 12, 2015. This Commencement Ceremony has been added at the conclusion of the fall semester to accommodate the increasing number of traditional and Degree Completion Program (DCP) students completing their degree programs at this time. This will be the first December commencement in the History of Arizona Christian University that was founded in 1960 as Southwestern Conservative Baptist Bible College. Since its founding, the university has made several transitions and has grown and developed into a non-denominational, private, accredited, non-profit Christian liberal arts university that seeks to transform culture with truth. The need for an additional commencement ceremony attests to the growth of the school and its desire to be adaptive to the needs of the students. Traditional and DCP students finishing their coursework in December will still have the opportunity to participate in the spring ceremony if they choose on May 14, 2016. Having the option of the additional commencement ceremony gives ACU graduates the flexibility they need to be competitive in today’s job market. The lessons they’ve learned at Arizona Christian University, either as traditional students or as adult students who have returned to finish their degree in the DCP, will be taken out into the world as they carry on the mission and “transform culture with...
ACU Announces Academic Partnership with Arizona State University

ACU Announces Academic Partnership with Arizona State University

Arizona Christian University is pleased to announce a new partnership with Arizona State University to expand our academic offerings. The program allows students to take courses at ACU, then transfer and apply into ASU’s biology program. The partnership will allow ACU students to take their first two years of classes at ACU, earning an associate’s degree from ACU and completing lower-level general studies requirements for ASU. The student can either stay at ACU to finish their bachelor’s degree in biology, or transfer to ASU, if they desire coursework in more specialized areas of biology such as forensics, ecology, genetics, or environmental science. Students who complete the partnership program will seamlessly transfer to ASU and be recognized as third-year students, without the loss of time or credit. The new program takes advantage of the strengths offered by both universities.  The partnership is an example of how a smaller university can still provide its students with the educational opportunities offered by a major research university.  Paul Kremer, Provost at ACU, is enthusiastic about the new partnership and what it offers for students. “Our faculty and staff have worked hard on this new expansion of ACU’s biology program. Students who want a private Christ-centered education can still have this experience while also having the option to pursue a specialized concentration in Biology,” said Kremer. The new partnership reflects ACU’s commitment to offering a Christian education to more students while encouraging them to pursue their academic options and ASU’s commitment to expanding opportunities for students to participate in interdisciplinary scholarship and research. Mark Searle, Provost at ASU, believes the program creates another opportunity for...
