Asbury Academy is an “Early Access to University” program for high school seniors. This program provides opportunities for high school seniors to take general education requirements at the University level (100- and 200-level courses), enabling them to complete their senior year of high school and earn University credit through dual enrollment.

On Campus

Enrollment in the Academy allows high school seniors to take four (4) credit hours on campus during the fall and spring semesters (summer session not included) with no tuition charge. Asbury Academy students may also take additional classes (up to 15 credit hours) during each of these two semesters at a reduced tuition rate of $420 per credit hour (half our traditional tuition rate). On campus Academy students can choose to register from over 80 classes.


Asbury Academy also offers courses online. These classes are offered in an intensive format – each course is only 8 weeks long, requiring a high level of academic discipline and motivation on the part of the student.  Due to the concentrated nature of these classes, a student may only be enrolled in one course at a time. Asbury's semesters are 16 weeks; a student interested in taking more than one online course may do so with consecutive classes. 

Students may take one online courses each semester at $125 per credit hour (an 80% discount off the regular tuition rate.) The online courses are 3 credit hours each. Additional online courses in the same semester are offered at 50% off the regular tuition rate.

The following online courses are available for Spring 2014:

  • ART 100 OA      Art Appreciation
  • COM 150 OA     Introduction to Communication
  • ENG 110 OA      Exposition and Research
  • HIS 102 OF      Western Civilization II
