Asbury Academy Admissions


Asbury Academy is an “Early Access to University” program for high school juniors and seniors. This program provides opportunities for high school seniors to take general education requirements at the University level (100- and some 200-level courses), enabling them to complete high school and earn University credit through dual enrollment. Students may participate in Asbury Academy during either both the fall and spring semesters (not during summer).



Asbury University offers Asbury Academy on-campus to local students.

High school seniors may take four (4) free credit hours each semester of their senior year. Additional courses may be taken at 50% of the regular tuition rate.

High school juniors may take on-campus courses for 50% of the regular tuition rate. (See University Tuition and Expenses in this Bulletin).  

On-campus students choose from over 80 course offerings in the 100 and 200 level classes.

On-Campus Academy students must be able to provide their own transportation.  



Asbury Academy also offers courses online. Online classes are offered in an 8 week intensive format. Due to the concentrated nature of these classes, a student may only be enrolled in one online course at a time. Academy students may take two consecutive online courses each semester.  The online classes are offered at a special reduced tuition charge for Asbury Academy Online students (see University Tuition and Expenses in this Bulletin).
