ACU is committed to making sure all new students – whether freshmen or transfer – make a smooth transition into the ACU family.  During the summer, ACU hosts several “Firestorm Foundations” events to help students complete all necessary enrollment, advising, and financial items. In August, ACU welcomes all new students through an official three-day orientation, followed by a week of fun activities known as “Week of Welcome.”
