The Asbury University Community
Asbury University is a community of learners in the Christian liberal arts tradition with a mission to prepare students educationally, socially, and spiritually to impact their world for Jesus Christ. The community is committed to ten foundational principles (see the undergraduate Handbook for Community Life or your program’s Community Expectations document) which promote the development of a lifestyle for a lifetime. At the heart of this community are Jesus’ two great commandments found in Matthew 22:37-40: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind....And...you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Whether you are a new or returning student, furthering your education will present challenges as well as opportunities. Asbury University provides programs and support services to assist you as you pursue your educational goal.
See the following sections for information regarding programs and support services for students enrolled in:
Traditional Undergraduate Program Opportunities and services (Wilmore Campus)
Adult Professional Studies Program – APS (Wilmore/Online, Orlando Campuses)

Social Life - In order to develop an environment conducive to a higher education which is Christ-like, the University has guidelines governing social life and conduct on campus.
Alcoholic Beverages and Drugs
We do not believe that the use of drugs and/or alcoholic beverages is in keeping with a Christian higher education experience. Therefore, possession or use of alcoholic beverages and/or illicit drugs is not permitted. Violation of this standard is taken seriously and leads to almost certain dismissal.
The use of tobacco is physically damaging to users, offensive to non‑users, and is not consistent with a Christian higher education experience. Therefore, possession or use of tobacco in any form is not permitted to those enrolled in Asbury University.
Additional information regarding University life for students enrolled in the Adult Professional Studies Program (Orlando and Wilmore campuses) or the Graduate Program can be found in the Community Expectations document for each program. Students enrolled in the traditional undergraduate program on the Wilmore campus can learn more from the Handbook for Community Life.
