Admissions Staff

Our dedicated Admissions staff are here for you!

Our campus is now open for in-person visits! Schedule yours today.

Please note: The state of Kentucky is currently requiring the use of masks in public. Our Office of Admissions is closely monitoring and following Asbury University’s official COVID-19 Response, and visits will follow recommendations as outlined by our COVID-19 Task Force, the CDC and government officials (if you do not have a mask for your visit, we can provide one for you!). If you are unable to travel, take a look below at our online alternatives for you to still get to know Asbury and for us to get to know you.
