Spring Arbor University

For 135 years, Spring Arbor University has distinguished itself as the place where faith and learning meet. What began as a small elementary and secondary school in the late 1800’s has evolved into a top-tier, liberal arts, Christian university with over 4,000 enrolled students. Among our most unique features is Spring Arbor’s cross-cultural experience. All students who come to our main campus as freshmen or sophomores participate in a required international study abroad, often at no additional cost, beyond normal tuition. Offering over 70 undergraduate majors and programs, seven degree completion programs, two associate programs, and eight graduate programs, SAU is home to a wealth of caring faculty and staff and a rich history of academic and spiritual excellence.
