  • About

    Anderson University is a private Christian college in Anderson, Indiana. Founded in 1917 by the Church of God, the university remains affiliated with its founding church and values its heritage and history.

    While firmly rooted in the traditions and history of the Church of God, the university has made significant advances in its 95 years, progressing from a Bible training school to a full-fledged liberal arts college and finally to a university offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, as well as graduate programs in business, music, nursing, and theology.

    Today about 2,600 students call Anderson University home. Among these, more than 2,000 are undergraduates while over 550 are enrolled in graduate programs. Our students come from almost every state and 22 nations, and represent about 71 religious denominations.

    Approximately 98 percent of AU students receive financial aid in a variety of forms, including scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time work-study employment. Students who apply for and receive aid based on financial need receive an average aid package of $20,000.

    AU students benefit from the expertise of our 136 faculty members and a low student-to-faculty ratio of 12 to 1. Among tenure-track faculty, 77 percent hold doctorates or other terminal degrees.
