Welcome to the Office of Financial Services and Bursar. The American College of Applied Science understands that higher education is a lifetime investment and an important one in your future and the future of your family, community, and organization. We strive to find the most affordable and convenient financial resources available to our students and prospective applicants. We strongly encourage you to explore the financial assistance programs available to ACAS students.

International students should consult with their national educational lending organizations.

Refunds will be made within 30 days of receipt of a SAR.
