At SAU, learning happens in our 97+ majors and programs, but it doesn't end there. It also happens in one-on-one meetings between students and faculty. It happens over a cup of coffee at Sacred Grounds, our campus coffee shop. It happens in graduate cohorts across Michigan and Ohio. Our caring faculty and staff are here to form students into critical participants. Whether you're fresh out of high school, looking to finish a degree or want to take your mind and career to the next level in a master's program, SAU will help you discover and embrace your purpose.
Your education is an investment in your future. Our Tuition & Aid section lays out what that investment looks like and how SAU helps make your future more affordable. Here, you’ll find information on grants, loans and scholarships as well as other financial aid programs. We also have Net Price Calculators and in depth information for prospective undergraduate, graduate and adult and professional students. First-time freshmen can also learn how SAU provides a student loan safety net with the Loan Repayment Assistance Program.
…there’s plenty more to keep you busy! Between intramurals, concerts and on-campus events, we’ll help you fill your schedule. Campus housing options range from traditional dorms to apartments and houses. But it’s not so much where you live as how you live, and the spiritual life at SAU pushes students to live admirable lives in community with one another. Chapel is the lynchpin of spiritual life at SAU, bringing together students with dynamic worship and powerful messages.
Whether you're playing rivals across state lines or friends across campus, a whole lot of life is about how you play the game. The Spring Arbor University Cougars are known for their success on the playing field and their commitment to the classroom and community. SAU competes in 15 intercollegiate sports within the Crossroads League, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and the National Christian College Athletics Association. Intramurals also provide opportunities for students to play sports on campus. Read more about intramurals at SAU.
