Degree Requirements

The Evening Program is a fantastic opportunity for adults that have started college or taken classes years ago! Our staff works with applicants to customize an educational plan that maximizes previous credits and may include online classes, CLEP, DSST testing, or prior learning assessments to build credits needed.

This chart outlines the degree requirements for graduation:

General Education 42 credit hours
Academic Major 48 credit hours
Biblical Studies 6 credit hours
Electives 24 credit hours
Total 120 credit hours

If you have completed approximately two years of college coursework or 50-60 hours of college credit, that can be transferred to Arizona Christian University when you are ready to begin.

If you have less than 50 credit hours, that’s okay. We can help you map out a plan to get you on track with your degree as quickly as possible. If you’re eligible, this plan may include options for receiving academic credit from:

  • Military Training
  • Professional Certification
  • Testing
  • Prior Learning Credit

If you have questions regarding college credits, please contact us at or (602) 386-4183 and we’ll be glad to map out an individual degree plan.

ACU welcomes Veterans and will accept credits earned through military training and active duty.
